Dealing meth again sends P.E.I. man to jail

·1 min read

A P.E.I. man will spend more than a year in jail after he pleaded guilty in Summerside provincial court recently to several charges, including drug trafficking.

Jeremy Gordon Irving Milligan, 36, of no fixed address, was pulled over by the Prince District Joint Forces Operation Drug Unit in Linkletter on July 28. He was driving a red 2007 Yamaha motorcycle.

Police found 224 methamphetamine tablets on him, even though he was on probation for methamphetamine trafficking at the time.

Milligan was charged with possession for the purposes of trafficking as well as resisting arrest.

He forfeited a cell phone and the pills, as well as his motorcycle and helmet to police.

Then in Richmond on Sept. 25, Milligan was charged for violating a release order; he wasn’t wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet.

Judge Krista MacKay sentenced Milligan to 730 days in jail for trafficking meth. He got another 15 days for resisting arrest and another 10 for not wearing the ankle bracelet, to be served concurrently. Afterwards, he’ll be on probation for 24 months. Milligan was given 283 days’ credit for time served.

Milligan must submit a DNA sample to the National DNA Databank, and he will be under a lifetime weapons ban.
