A Nelson man once told by a judge to leave town has been sentenced to another two years or probation for breaching his previous probation order.
Mikael Arrak, 27, appeared in court on Thursday.
He had been serving three years of probation for criminal harassment of his ex-girlfriend and was ordered to stay away from her and her family. However, a new charge was laid after he spoke to her mother.
The case received national attention in January when a judge gave Arrak, a deadline to be on a bus out of town and told him not to come back until his probation was over.
However, after it was reported in the media, the order was overturned.
Arrak has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
His mother Annely was concerned the banishment order would result in her son living on the street in Vancouver because he is unable to hold a job and had no place to go.
