Melvin was sentenced on Monday to an indefinite sentence in Nova Scotia Supreme Court, where the judge described him as his own.
Real and imminent danger To the public.
In a written decision, Judge Peter Rosinski indicated that the Crown had revealed 23 violent crimes committed by Melvin, starting in 1995, when he was 15 years old.
The Crown argued that over the next 25 years, Melvin engaged in threatening and violent behavior, which included numerous assaults involving pool cues, hockey sticks, baseball bats and fists.
The 38-year-old perpetrator has been serving a prison sentence since July 2015 when he was arrested for attempting to murder rival gangster Terry Marriott Jr. on December 2, 2008.
On October 5, 2017, two files were convicted of this charge and conspiracy to commit murder, and the Crown later requested that he be classified as a serious criminal.
The indefinite sentence does not have an end date; Canada’s Parole Board reviews a sentence after seven years and then every two years after that.
