"Judge Marianne Armstrong told Young that intimate partner violence is a concern for the court and that his history was “deeply troubling.”
“Every year, many, many women die at the hands of their partners. Many more women are injured and traumatized at the hands of their partners,” Armstrong said.

The judge accepted a joint submission from Crown and defence counsel that Young serve six months in jail, followed by 18 months of probation, which includes having no contact with his girlfriend except for via telephone, attending drug treatment and not possessing weapons."
"Crown prosecutor Evan Goulet said Young had been drinking, became angry with his girlfriend and punched and kicked her. She tried to leave and Young hit her in the face and kneed her in the ribs, telling her he would kill her if she left. She managed to escape the house, but Young followed her to the yard, ripped off her house coat and dragged her back, naked, toward their house before she got free again."
