COR­NER BROOK, N.L. –Shane Rod­er­ick White has been sen­tenced to time served for a theft that hap­pened a month be­fore he was ar­rested for an al­leged vi­o­lent home in­va­sion in Hum­ber Arm South ear­lier this year.

White, 33, has been in cus­tody since he and his twin brother Shawn Robert White were ar­rested and charged in re­la­tion to the home in­va­sion in their home­town com­mu­nity of Benoit’s Cove this past March 17.

While his brother was later re­leased on bail, Shane White was de­nied bail and re­mains locked up.

On June 10, White was is­sued a sus­pended sen­tence for time served and was given 12 months pro­ba­tion for steal­ing a re­cip­ro­cat­ing saw at Kent Build­ing Sup­plies in Cor­ner Brook in early Fe­bru­ary.

White had pleaded guilty to the theft, along with two charges of breach­ing court or­ders.

He had been in cus­tody for 86 days at the time of his sen­tenc­ing. Crown at­tor­ney Trina Simms had asked for a sen­tence in the two- to three-month range.

The out­stand­ing charges against him stem­ming from the home in­va­sion are be­ing dealt with in the Supreme Court of New­found­land and Labrador. Should he be con­victed, he will not be el­i­gi­ble to re­ceive credit for any of the time taken off his pre-sen­tence cus­tody for the theft con­vic­tion.

Both the White broth­ers are charged with ag­gra­vated as­sault, as­sault with a weapon, rob­bery, and break­ing and en­ter­ing to com­mit an in­dictable of­fence. Shane White is also charged with two pro­ba­tion breaches.

Shawn White’s mat­ters are be­ing dealt with at the pro­vin­cial court level.


Shane White is seen en­ter­ing the Supreme Court of New­found­land and Labrador in Cor­ner Brook on June 3.
