'Spiderman' arsonist gets jail time

The young man known for his comedic semantics while breaking into a home in the Black Mountain area, back in 2012, will now serve nine months behind bars for his actions.

Brandon Seberras-Pick who was 18 at the time of the offense, will also serve another 3 months in jail for attempted arson.

Provincial Court Judge Jane Cartwright says she can't ignore the fact that there were pieces of a lighter stuffed in the gas cap of a car, and although Seberras-Pick admitted to lighting the mirror of the car on fire he denies trying to ignite the gas cap on fire.

"I don't know what other decision I can come to other than he was trying to light the car on fire."

Cartwright explained that attempted arson is a very serious offence for which she felt imprisonment was necessary.

Seberras-Pick will spend a total of 345 days behind bars, after consideration of his 14 days time served.

The Kelowna resident has already been on probation since the incident, and has never breached his conditions, which contributed to Cartwright only handing him a one year probation term after his jail sentence.

Some terms of his probation include, keeping the peace, no alcohol or drugs, attending counselling, and having no contact with the woman whose car he attempted to light on fire or the man's home he broke into.

He is also restricted from the Black Mountain Area.

Cartwright also told Seberras-Pick that he must attend school or seek employment once his jail term ends, and perhaps follow up on his idea to go to Okanagan College for welding.
