Man with brain tumour gets house arrest
Soudloo Josephie, a Kimmirut man now living in Iqaluit who suffers from a brain tumour, will serve 11 months under a form of house arrest for two assaults.
One assault relates to an attack that Josephie inflicted on his ex-wife in Kimmirut in the presence of their two-year-old child, while the other relates to an attack on a man who wanted to buy one of Josephie’s carvings.
Josephie hit the man with the carving after they failed to agree on a sale price.
“Anger has been part of Soudloo’s life since 1992,” Kilpatrick said, pointing out that this was his sixth conviction for assaulting his ex-wife, and that he has been convicted of 13 or 14 crimes of violence.
Josephie will stay at this brother’s house in Iqaluit under a long list of strict conditions.
