Michael Oxford to serve time in jail for repeatedly violating court order conditions

A Corner Brook man with a long history of disobeying court orders will be cooling his heels in jail for the next several weekends.

Michael Randell Oxford, who has been previously admonished by the courts multiple times for violent offences and his disregard for court orders, was arrested five times in eight days this month.

The 56-year-old racked up 15 charges for court order breaches during that time period between July 16 and Tuesday of this week. Most of the offences were due to Oxford not complying with a condition of an undertaking ordered last November that stipulated he must remain inside his residence between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.

One of the charges said against him when he was arrested on Main Street at around 11:20 p.m. Tuesday involved the alleged violation of a condition prohibit him from possessing or consuming alcohol.

When Oxford appeared in provincial court Wednesday after being held in custody overnight, he entered a guilty plea to breaching the curfew order he was subject to and the remaining charges were all withdrawn.

He was sentenced to serve a 30-day intermittent sentence, followed by three months of probation. Oxford is expected to turn himself in every Friday evening and be released the following Monday morning until his sentence has been served.
