Man who assaulted Kelowna killer in jail pleads guilty to golf course break-in

March 13, 2017 - 9:00 PM

WEST KELOWNA – A local man who assaulted a convicted Kelowna killer in jail late last year has pleaded guilty to breaking into the clubhouse of the Shannon Lake Golf Course.

Travis Hashe pleaded guilty in Kelowna Supreme Court today, March 13, to mischief under $5,000, break and enter, possessing a break-in instrument and willfully resisting arrest. He will be sentenced at a later date.

While in custody one year ago, Hashe and Jacob Daniel Lowes allegedly assaulted Daniel Mader on Dec. 6, 2015 at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre.

Mader is a prolific Kelowna criminal who was convicted of manslaughter in 2010, in connection to the 2005 death of Jody Elliott. He is currently in custody for being caught in a home with guns and drugs.

Lowes is one of three men facing trial for charges stemming from a shooting incident in Vernon's Polson Park nearly three years ago.

Although Hashe pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and will be sentenced next month, Lowes disputes the charge of aggravated assault. He's on trial for charges including attempted murder in connection to the shooting incident in Vernon.
