On October 30,2015 Erickson viciously attacked a woman breaking numerous bones in her body. The victim had a lengthy stay (months) in hospital.

Erickson stands about 5’6” tall, has a moustache, paunchy build and wearing blue Carhartt work wear.
Crown Attorney is Piera Pasloski and defence Attorney is Tyler Woods. Pasloski was initially seeking a 5-8 year prison sentence but her joint submission with Woods is for a 1 year sentence in jail with 3 years probation because he already spent 2 years on house arrest under strict conditions.

The court hears that Erickson is a City of Thunder Bay employee and he’s received a one year leave of absence so he can be incarcerated. He’ll return to work once he’s released.

Erickson has a lengthy criminal record of violence but it is dated.

Judge Fitzpatrick asks him if he has anything to say before Sentence is passed. Erickson replies “I don’t know, not much I can say”.

His Honour Fitzpatrick sentences Erickson to 12 months in jail followed by 3 years probation. No contact with victim, must provide DNA sample and a 10 year weapon ban. He has until October 2019 to pay a 200$ victim surcharge. And weapons seized by Thunder Bay Police will not be returned to Erickson but to a different individual.
Ricki Lee Erickson is then handcuffed by Thunder Bay Police and led out of the courtroom to go serve some time. He’ll most likely be released in 8 months.
