Curtis Vidal pulls eight years for armed home invasion

Drug dealer and self-described gangster Curtis Vidal was sentenced to eight years in jail in BC Supreme Court in Chilliwack for a violent home invasion. Vidal’s co-accused Travis Soderstrom was sentenced to seven years. Vidal had about 55 convictions over the last 20 years. He has spent more than half of the last decade incarcerated, leading the judge to wonder how he could commit more crimes while in jail.

His lawyer responded that the crimes Vidal has been convicted of in recent years have been non-violent: driving, drugs, firearms and breaches.
