Judge pushes back sentencing for robber until new year
November 1, 2017
Judge G.W. Paul
Dwayne S. Beauregard appeared via closed circuit television from Edmonton Remand Centre (ERC) for his 12th appearance for a possession of stolen property charge, to which he tendered a plea of guilty.
Provincial Crown Attorney Jordan Lenett told the court that on June 7, 2017, Slave Lake RCMP responded to a backup request from Town of Slave Lake peace officers.
According to the peace officers, they had pulled over a vehicle after running checks and finding out it was reported stolen. Beauregard was the only occupant of the vehicle and eventually admitted to knowing the car was stolen.
Judge Paul sentenced Beauregard to a further 90 days behind bars.

Buddy R. Underwood also appeared in court via closed circuit television from Peace River Correctional Centre. He pled guilty to one count of robbery and one count of failing to comply with conditions.
Crown Prosecutor Lenett told the court that Underwood was positively identified by video surveillance as one of the culprits involved in a violent robbery at the local Source store earlier in 2017.
According to Lenett, three males entered the store and stole merchandise; when the clerks chased after them one of the males (identified as Underwood) discharged the contents of a can of bear mace at an employee’s face.
Judge Paul put off Underwood’s sentencing until sometime in the new year.
