American lawyer ordered to pay up for crossing Osoyoos border with firearms

Fine for gun-toting lawyer

An American lawyer has been slapped with a $9,100 fine after crossing the border in Osoyoos with undeclared firearms in his vehicle.

Shawn Bertram Jensen, who is in his early 60s, was given the sentence in Penticton court Tuesday.

Jensen was facing charges related to allegedly possessing a loaded, restricted Ruger .22 handgun and an unloaded Colt AR15 SP1 rifle at the Osoyoos border crossing on Oct. 25, 2019, according to court documents.

His trial, which was originally due to start in February 2021, was delayed multiple times during the pandemic, due to border restrictions that would require him to quarantine for 14 days prior to trial.

Jensen was convicted on two counts of storing his firearms improperly and was ordered to pay $9,100.
