Twenty-two-year-old Kyle Williston, who shot a man in the parking lot of the Tim Horton’s at Walker Road and Wyandotte Street East, was sentenced to 71 months in jail Friday.

With credit for time already served, the Windsor man still has another 51 months left on his sentence. The Crown and Williston’s lawyer Linda McCurdy made a joint submission seeking the sentence that was accepted by Superior Court Justice Renee Pomerance.  

“Anytime there’s a shooting in our community, it’s gravely serious,” assistant Crown attorney Scott Pratt said.

“It was a difficult job her honour had because she had to balance public (safety), imposing a meaningful and lengthy sentence, while not imposing a crushing sentence and ignoring any possibility of rehabilitation this person may have.

“In the end I think the sentence reflected both of those requirements. It’s a sentence the Crown is pleased with.”

Williston shot Michael Kane in the stomach on June 22, 2016. after a dispute in the parking lot before running off to hide his gun at his girlfriend’s Monmouth Road home.

He was apprehended the next day by Windsor police on Henry Ford Centre Drive. He originally faced 13 charges, including attempted murder.

Williston, who was already under several court prohibitions at the time of the shooting, pled guilty to multiple weapons charges and aggravated assault.
