MOUNTAIN VIEW COUNTY — A woman has been sentenced to two years in jail after pleading guilty to aggravated assault in connection with an incident in which a man was shot in the county.
Jessica McClintock, 34, of Calgary received that sentence during an appearance in King’s Bench Court in Calgary Oct. 21.
She was also banned from owning or possessing firearms for 10 years.
Two counts of discharging a firearm with intent were withdrawn.
The case dates back to March 20, 2020 at a home east of Olds near the junction of Twp. Rd 320 and Rge. Rd. 290.
Court was told that McClintock believed some property belonging to her had been kept by residents. There was also a dispute over money owed. She enlisted the help of her boyfriend.
Sometime after they entered the house, the gun went off. One of the men, Billy Jack James Williams, 47, was wounded and airlifted to hospital where he later recovered.
It was alleged that shots were also fired at another man, Brent Peterson.
Court was told that McClintock drove off the property, ditched the vehicle and called a friend to pick her up.
On Feb. 10, 2021, Lyle Robert Walter Vance, 28, of Red Deer pleaded guilty in provincial court in Calgary to discharging a firearm with intent, careless use of a firearm and possession of a firearm, contrary to a prohibition order.
He was sentenced to six years, to be served consecutively with a current term he was already serving. He was also ordered to provide his DNA and was prohibited from possessing firearms.
