Inmate sentenced to 45 days for drug possession

    An inmate who had his release revoked was sentenced  after drugs were found in his possession while he was being readmitted to the Drumheller Institution.
     Morley Ahkimnachie appeared in provincial court in Drumheller on Friday January 20  where he pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis.
    On May 28 of last year, Ahkimnachie, 22, was an inmate at the Institution but had achieved statutory release. He failed to report and his release was revoked.
    He was apprehended and returned to the Drumheller Institution.  While in dry cell during readmission he produced a 35-millimetre film canister, which contained 2 grams of cannabis resin. The Institutional value of the cache was said to be worth $950.
    Judge Grieve accepted a joint submission from the Federal Prosecutor and defense council for a 45-day sentence.
