Guy Lafleur's son gets 66 days in jail
By QMI Agency
SAINT-JEROME, QUE. - Guy Lafleur's son Mark was sentenced Thursday to 66 days in jail for drug possession and violating conditions.
The 26-year-old pleaded guilty to the offences after he was arrested at a bar north of Montreal on Friday.
The sentence is the latest legal problem for the troubled son of the former NHL superstar.
Mark Lafleur admitted to three counts including possession of 125 ml of the recreational drug GHB and operating a vehicle in violation of a driving ban.
Lafleur has also pleaded guilty to possessing marijuana. That charge resulted from a police search in September 2010 in Blainville, Que., north of Montreal.
In 2009, he was sentenced to 15 months to be served in the community and three years of probation for various charges related to the assault and confinement of his teenage ex-girlfriend.
Guy Lafleur became ensnared in his son's legal problems in 2007 when he was charged with giving misleading information at his son's bail hearing.
An appeals court overturned the charges in August 2010.
