An additional charge of possession of property obtained by crime was stayed.

She is prohibited from possessing a firearm for 10 years upon her release from prison and has been ordered to provide a DNA sample.

Wahobin was the passenger in a car driven by Brydon Whitsone, 22, that was involved in a police chase Saturday evening.

It ended when the car rammed a RCMP SUV and an officer shot Whitsone, which RCMP officials said was “in response to the driver’s actions following the pursuit.”
