Dawson Lindsay pleads guilty to 2011 violent assault

Dawson Allan Lindsay pleaded guilty to 2011 assault in Revelstoke that left a man hospitalized for three days.

A Revelstoke man pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm in connection to an April 2011 incident that left a man hospitalized for three days.

Dawson Allan Lindsay, who is now living in Estevan, Sask., pleaded guilty to the charge in Revelstoke court last Thursday, Apr. 4.

Charges against his co-accused Tyler Jame Colt McKay were stayed.

The circumstances of the assault were not read out in court but at the time the victim called the assault “an attack.”

“It was completely one-sided, no remorse, no mercy or anything,” he told the Times Review.

It happened late on the night of Apr. 24, 2011, in the Farwell area. The victim said he was skateboarding home from a barbecue when he was set upon by two other men, punched in the face twice, and then kicked in the face when he was lying on the ground.

The attack left him hospitalized for three days and he had to have surgery to repair his jaw.

A warrant was put out for Lindsay’s arrest but he was not caught until Jan. 26, 2013, in Estevan. The matter was set for trial last Thursday, but Lindsay pleaded guilty before the trial began.

Sentencing is scheduled for July 3, after a pre-sentence report on Lindsay is completed.

The victim, who asked not to be named, said he was relieved at the guilty plea. He gave thanks to the RCMP and everyone else that helped him during his recovery.

Lindsay has a checkered past. He was the target in the October 2010 shooting deaths of Jimmy Armilotta and Fil Kedzior at a marijuana grow operation in Cold Lake, Alta.
