University of B.C. Hornets hockey coach and former Scoutmaster Martin Tremblay was sentenced for an assault two months before he tripped a young player during a post-game handshake, court heard Thursday.
Tremblay was in provincial court in Richmond, B.C., for a pre-sentence hearing after pleading guilty in November to two counts of assault. Two boys fell when Tremblay tripped a 13-year-old who had sworn at and taunted the coach after scoring a goal during a game in June.
Crown attorney Gerri-Lyn Nelson is seeking a 30-day house arrest order for Tremblay, followed by 18 months probation with a string of conditions, including that Tremblay doesn’t work with minors.
