Makkovik Man Pleads Guilty on Assault Charges

Two days ago, a Makkovik woman was assaulted in the town of Makkovik.

Sergeant Boyd Merrill is the RCMP Media Relations Officer in St. John’s.

He says 45-year-old William Tabeas Nochasak plead guilty yesterday in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

Merrill says this was from charges during a violent domestic assault on his girlfriend on October 26.

RCMP were called to the scene when an off duty officer found the victim in the streets of Makkovik yelling and screaming over her injuries.

Merrill says RCMP attended to the medical concerns of the victim then attended the residence of Nochasak and arrested him.

He says Nochasak plead guilty at the first opportunity and was sentenced to a total of 13 months in jail.

Merrill says the break down is a 12 months sentence for the Aggravated Assault and one month for breach of probation.

Merrill adds that the four other related charges were withdrawn at the time of the guilty plea.
