Bradley Rico Oliver will spend the next five years and one month in a federal prison after he was sentenced yesterday in New Glasgow on attempted murder charges.

 

Judge Robert Stroud sentenced the 22-year-old Halifax man to eight years in prison for his actions on the night of March 14, 2007 when he shot Riley Lloyd twice, in the arm and leg, in the victim’s New Glasgow home.

 

Lloyd's arm had to be practically reattached at the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax following the incident, said Crown attorney Bill Gorman.

 

While Gorman requested an eight-to-10 year sentence and one on one remand time credit, since all of the delays in the case over the past 17 months have been at the request of Oliver, Stroud decided to go with the traditional two for one credit, giving Oliver 35 months credit for time served.
