Tyler Brown, 24, has lost his right to possess a firearm.

Moose Jaw Provincial Court

Brown appeared in Moose Jaw provincial court Monday after spending 109 days in remand on a number of charges. 

He pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm contrary to order and an obstruction charge.

Brown was arrested after attempting to flee when he was stopped by police on Dec. 27, 2013, Crown prosecutor Rob Parker told the court.

Police discovered he had a shotgun in his possession while he was under a court-ordered firearm ban.

In sentencing, Parker and Brown's legal counsel made a joint submission to Judge Douglas Kovatch requesting a six month sentence with time served.

"I am always of the view that I should follow a joint submission from counsel," Kovatch told the court before sentencing Brown to three months for each of the two charges, to be served concurrently.

Kovatch also ordered a lifetime firearm ban and that Brown pay a criminal victim surcharge.
