Bomb Builder Pleads Guilty

Advertisement

The man accused in the attempted pipe bombing of a Halfway River Rest Area washroom in 1999 has been sentenced to 2 years of house arrest.

The Alaska Highway News reports that yesterday in court Peter Houston pled guilty to construction of an explosive device and possession of explosive materials. An additional charge of attempted murder was dropped because the crown lacked sufficient evidence. Houston, who represented himself in court, will serve out his sentence at his home in Prince George. He has also been banned from owning any firearms or explosive materials for the next 10 years.

Supreme Court Justice Wendy Baker said she considered Houston’s conduct since the incident when rendering her verdict.
