Surrey Provincial Court

Man sentenced for White Rock assault

A Surrey man was sentenced Friday to 69 days in jail – time served – after pleading guilty to hitting his girlfriend.

A Surrey man who pleaded guilty to hitting his girlfriend in the face during an altercation outside of a Marine Drive restaurant was sentenced for the crime last week in Surrey Provincial Court.

As of last Wednesday, Mandeep Paul Singh Ghangass had been in custody for 69 days.

Following a joint submission by lawyers in the case, Judge Michael Hicks ruled that time served was an appropriate penalty.

Ghangass, 28, pleaded guilty Aug. 23 to assault and uttering threats, in connection with an incident that was reported to White Rock police on June 3 and an incident July 26 in Surrey.

A 30-year-old Delta woman told police she was assaulted by her boyfriend around 11 p.m. June 1. According to a police report, the boyfriend had accused the woman of “checking out other guys.”

According to Surrey police, the July 26 incident took place in Cougar Creek Park and resulted in charges of assault, uttering threats and “intimidate/provoke/impede justice system participant” against Ghangass, who’d had court-ordered conditions to not be in contact with her.

Ghangass was initially scheduled to go to trial on the charges on Oct. 2.

In addition to time served, Hicks imposed 18 months probation, a no-contact order and a lifetime weapons prohibition on Ghangass.
