Jail time already served, man walks away on probation

PENTICTON - An Oliver man was sentenced Monday for charges related to a car bomb explosion last August.

Eric Olivier Daoust pled guilty to mischief over $5,000 and was sentenced to 30 days in jail plus two years of probation. He already served the jail time so he walked out of Penticton Provincial Court on probation, said Crown prosecutor Mallory Treddenick.

Daoust and his younger brother, Stephan Wesley Daoust, were both charged with placing or throwing an explosive with intent to damage property. The brothers admitted to putting a bomb under a car outside an Oliver residence. The bomb exploded, damaging the car and a nearby garage. No one was injured.
