Calgary man pleads guilty to spitting incidents in 2020

CALGARY –

A man from Calgary has pleaded guilty to charges of assault and threat, following a series of spitting incidents last summer.

Justin Williams pleaded guilty to four of 17 charges Tuesday.

In July 2020, a number of people said they were spit on by a passing cyclist who uttered racial slanders along a cycle path in Ramsay.

Video of a spitting incident went viral.

The judge gave Williams a conditional discharge with a probationary period. He stated that Williams’ ‘moral guilt’ had diminished due to mental illness.
