Deleriyes Joe Cramer has been sentenced to two years less a day for robbing the Scotiabank branch on Teredo Street in Sechelt on April 28. Because of the time he’s spent in custody, he’s also being credited with six months time served.
Cramer, 43, pleaded guilty June 8 to the robbery charge and charges of wearing a disguise to commit a crime, fleeing from police, and dangerous driving.
Crown prosecutor Trevor Cockfield said the sentence is on the low end of the scale for those types of offences, but it falls in line with his recommendations to the judge in the case.
In addition to the jail term, Cramer will spend two years on probation and his probation conditions include getting counselling and residential treatment for substance abuse. He’s also expected to get treatment while in custody.
The charges against Cramer drew international attention because of his reputation as a child actor in the 1980s. He’s best known for the lead role in the 1986 film Flight of the Navigator.
