One of two people charged in relation to a home invasion on the O’Chiese First Nation early in January has been sentenced after pleading guilty in Rocky Mountain House provincial court on Monday.

Delston Beaverbones, 18 was supposed to have had a preliminary hearing on that day on numerous charges, including uttering threats, possession of a firearm and possession of a loaded, restricted firearm.

The charges stem from an incident early in the morning of Jan. 2, when RCMP allege that one adult and two teenagers entered the residence and threatened the people inside.

Beaverbones, who has been in custody since the incident, pleaded guilty to break and enter, one count of uttering a threat and possession of a loaded, restricted firearm. The remaining charges were subsequently withdrawn.

He was sentenced to 36 months in prison, ordered to submit a sample of his DNA and prohibited from possessing firearms for 10 years following the completion of his sentence.
