Just out of jail, Bradshaw back for two years

A Red Deer man was sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty to robbery and other charges related to a carjacking near Airdrie.

A Red Deer man was sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty to robbery and other charges related to a carjacking near Airdrie.

William Clayton Bradshaw, 26, of Red Deer pleaded guilty to a number of charges in Airdrie provincial court last Thursday, including the robbery charge, which drew a two-year sentence.

Bradshaw also got four months each for two charges of failing to comply with probation orders, and one month for carrying a concealed weapon and one month for failing to provide a breath sample. Those sentences are to be served concurrently.

He was also given a 10-year weapons prohibition, must surrender a sample of his DNA to a national database, and is prohibited from driving for one year following his release from prison.

RCMP were alerted after a man pulled his vehicle over near Carstairs to aid a hitchhiker. Police allege that the hitchhiker pulled a knife, robbed the driver and then ordered him out of his car near Airdrie and took off. The driver called 911.

The vehicle was pulled over a few kilometres further south during a police Check Stop.

Bradshaw had only been out of jail for 12 days when the incident happened.
