Former Dawson City mayor Glen Everitt will be serving his sentence for misusing public money in Ontario.

Everitt, who is suffering from insomnia, depression and chronic pain, is allowed to move to Chatham, a small town in southwestern Ontario, to serve his 12-month conditional sentence after he was found guilty of misappropriating public money for his benefit last month, said Judge Heino Lillies in a decision last week.

The transfer request was granted on September 7 because Everitt cannot find adequate medical service in Yukon, according to court documents.

Everitt, 46, has family in Chatham. He must adhere to a 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew and report by telephone to his Yukon-based probation officer, the transfer agreement says.

He is not allowed to consume alcohol or attend any licensed bars or taverns. He will have to return to a Yukon court in December for a review of his sentence.

Everitt, who was mayor between 1996 and 2004, faced multiple charges after an auditor found inconsistencies in Dawson’s finances.
