Doing life...

On the "installment plan".
-- KINGSTON -- A 20-year-old Kingston man who left his probation papers at the scene of his latest crime will have six months to consider whether he's chosen the right career path.

Andrew D. Oatway pleaded guilty in Kingston's Ontario Court of Justice to a Jan. 25 break-in and theft from Dino's Barber Shop, two violations of the probation he received Nov. 16 for an earlier break-in and possession of marijuana.

Oatway's defence lawyer, Dan Scully, asked for some leniency for his client, noting his relative youth. He told Masse that Oatway became a father in January and expressed some hope his client will turn his life around.

"Obviously, he's not very good at this."
