Samoleski arrested for breaching conditions
A former Prince Albert corrections guard at the center of a fatal hit-and-run case and standoff is back in custody after breaching court conditions.
Leslie Samoleski, 45, was arrested without incident on May 1 at a residence in the city.
Prince Albert Police are charging him, in connection with breaching his recognizance, with not abstaining from alcohol, not submitting to an alcohol test and not keeping the peace.
Samoleski was charged in April 2011 after hitting 14-year-old Montana Netmaker with a truck, which resulted in a 15 hour standoff at his home on Steele Bay in the north of the city. The girl later died from her injuries.
Back in December he pleaded guilty to possessing a weapon dangerous to the public, use and storage of a loaded rifle and leaving the scene of an accident knowing a death had been caused.
The other charges were dropped.
Samoleski is scheduled to be sentenced on May 7. His breach offences will also be dealt with during that appearance.
Under his conditions of recognizance he was to abstain from alcohol, submit to alcohol testing on demand, keep the peace and be on good behavior. He also was not allowed to enter the city limits of Prince Albert, other than attending his court dates.
Since Samoleski was living in Alberta, he was under supervision from Alberta probation officers.
Prince Albert police are investigating when Samoleski came back into the city and are in contact with Alberta Police.
