Man sentenced on break-and-enter charges
A man charged in relation to breaking into a residence and threatening a woman with a knife has pleaded guilty to some of the charges he faced, while others have been dropped.
Justin Holt, 28, broke into a Red Deer apartment on Aug. 31, contrary to a peace bond.
On Sept. 25, he pleaded guilty in Red Deer provincial court to break and enter and breaching a peace bond. The Crown dropped an assault charge and an assault with a weapon charge was stayed.
Holt was sentenced to 27 months jail for the break and enter charge and received a 10-year firearm prohibition.
Police said Holt has a history of domestic violence and he faces several other charges, including uttering threats and breaching court orders.
He was arrested on Sept. 6 and has been in police custody since.
