Reece was alleged to have committed the offences between April 19 and 20 in Squamish and Agassiz. 

He’s expected to return to court on Sept. 11 for his sentencing.

In light of the guilty pleas, the Crown has said it probably will not proceed with a charge of possession of property obtained by crime.

“A stay has not been entered with respect to that count, but I expect it will be at the conclusion of his sentencing on Counts 1 and 2,” said an email from Alisia Adams, legal counsel to the assistant deputy attorney general. “Where the Crown directs a stay of proceedings of a count as part of a plea resolution, re-instituting proceedings is not something we would consider. As a result, no trial is expected in relation to this matter.”

Previously, Reece made headlines after pleading guilty to criminal negligence in the death of Tanya Lee Boudewyn.

He was involved in a two-vehicle crash in 2012 around the intersection of Government and Depot roads in Brackendale.

Boudewyn, a Squamish mother of two, died as a result of the accident. Reece was treated for injuries.

In 2014, Reece was sentenced to a 3.5-year prison sentence.

The judge also banned him from driving for 10 years and imposed a firearm prohibition.

Reece was also found guilty in an unrelated case involving drinking and driving in 2013.
