Trial date set for local woman

Charges stem from domestic dispute in 100 Mile House

Alana Michelle Sinclair was in Williams Lake provincial court on Dec. 3 to fix a trial date for charges stemming from a domestic dispute in 100 Mile House on June 4.

The 30-year-old local resident is facing charges of uttering threats, threat to use a weapon and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Her trial will be held in 100 Mile House provincial court on April 30, 2015.

Around 6:45 p.m. on June 4, local RCMP responded to a call about a domestic dispute in progress in an apartment on Cariboo Trail.

When the first RCMP member arrived at the residence, he encountered Sinclair and Daryl Anderson, 45, in a dispute.

It is alleged Anderson brandished a knife and made threatening gestures toward the officer and the fled from the building.

At that point, it is also alleged Sinclair picked up a knife and threatened the officer, as well as causing property damage and self-inflicted injuries.

According to the RCMP report, there was a brief standoff, which ended when Sinclair relinquished the knife. She was arrested, taken to 100 Mile District General Hospital for medical care and then released.

Anderson was caught and subdued during an arrest on nearby Cedar Avenue later that evening.

He appeared in Kamloops provincial court on Sept. 18 and was sentenced to 13 months in jail, given a two-year probation and a five-year firearms prohibition after entering guilty pleas to two counts of assaulting a police officer.
