Sheshatshiu man opts for rare Innu sentencing circle


A Sheshatshiu man facing two counts of assault recently opted to have a sentencing circle as part of his court proceedings — and Sheshatshiu Innu First Nation Justice Coordinator David Penashue hopes more people will do the same.

"We're trying our best to bring it back to the community," he told CBC News.

Penashue estimates it's been about 10 years since the community's last sentencing circle.
