Previous decision suspending Neary’s sentence overturned by court of appeal
Former University of Saskatchewan Huskies football player Seamus Neary has been sentenced to 15 months in jail after the province’s highest court overturned his suspended sentence.
In 2014 police seized several kilograms of marijuana from Neary and charged him with possession for the purpose of trafficking.
A Court of Queen’s Bench judge gave Neary a suspended sentence, which meant he would avoid jail time as long as he stayed out of trouble and obeyed conditions set by the court. However, the Crown appealed the sentence.
