A former Penticton RCMP officer has pleaded guilty to criminally harassing the wife of another local Mountie while still on the force. Rachelle Blanchard, who held the rank of constable before leaving the RCMP in May , entered the plea in June and was due to be sentenced Monday in provincial court in Penticton. However, the case was adjourned after resident Judge Michelle Daneliuk declined to hear it because she could in the future be required to take testimony from Const. Martin Degen in unrelated matters.
