CLARENDON – Daniel Chartrand, a 45-year old Gatineau resident and Shawville native involved in a violent break and enter in Sand Bay in the early
morning of July 12 will spend two years in prison and three on probation after accepting a plea deal during a hearing in Campbell’s Bay on September 24.
Chartrand broke into a Sand Bay home and assaulted both the homeowner and Chartrand’s ex-girlfriend Sacha Issajenko, the mother of his three-year-old daughter, who is dating the homeowner’s son. Both victims were taken to the hospital; the homeowner had a laceration on her arm and Issajenko had severe injuries to her face that required consultation with a facial reconstruction specialist. Although Issajenko originally reported she was assaulted with both a taser and a knife, the knife was the only weapon recovered.     
Chartrand turned himself in within a couple weeks and was denied bail during a hearing in August. He remained in custody awaiting his pre-trial hearing
facing seven charges: break and enter, mischief, forcible confinement, and two counts each of assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm.
According to Maître Simon Pelletier, crown prosecutor, Chartrand plead guilty to three of those charges – break and enter, and two counts of assault causing bodily harm – and was sentenced to 27 months, minus the time he spent in custody, which amounts to 24 months, as well as three years of probation. Issajenko read a victim impact statement at the hearing.
