Blockade leader Shawn Brant has been sentenced for his involvement in rail blockades in Marysville earlier this year.

In Napanee court yesterday, Brant was given a three month conditional sentence and 12 months probation, after blocking the CN rail line in March at Wymans Road.

He was charged with two counts of mischief, however he will not receive any jail time.

The judge ordered Brant to remain on the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory for 90 days.

Brant along with other aboriginals, were protesting in hopes of forcing a national public inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women.

Shannonville Road near the Airport Parkway was closed for days as part of the protests as well.
