Christopher Westcott was sentenced today in provincial court in St. John’s today.
He was given 75 days’ credit for the time he’s already spent in custody, leaving about 3 1/2 months to serve.
The 31-year-old was arrested in November in the Goulds, where Westcott was said to have been causing a disturbance.
When officers tried to restrain him, he spat at them several times.
He pleaded guilty to assaulting police officers, uttering threats, resisting arrest and breach of probation.
