TRURO - A Truro man, sentenced to seven years for attempted murder with a ball-peen hammer, has been granted leave privileges from a halfway house.
Trevor James Lunn left jail on statutory release in July but had six conditions imposed, including no leave privileges. The board granted the leaves in a decision dated Dec. 22.
"The board notes the completion of the community maintenance program and your interventions with mental health professionals," the board members wrote in their report. "You have consistently been attempting to establish a positive relationship with prosocial family members who wish to become active participants in your return to the community.
"The authorization of leave privileges will assist with your reintegration efforts without compromising public safety."
Lunn was 28 years old in November 2004 when he was sentenced to seven years and seven days for attempted murder, assault with the use of force, possession of marijuana and cocaine as well as failing to comply with conditions of an undertaking.
The unprovoked attack happened on Oct. 22, 2004 that severely injured a woman.
