Burglary assault charges net BHC man 19 years in prison

KINGMAN – A 19-year prison term has been ordered for a Bullhead City man who broke into a home and assaulted an officer who showed up to investigate. Judge Billy Sipe sentenced Christopher Chambers, 43, Monday at the Mohave County Courthouse.

“I cannot take back what I’ve done. I can only accept responsibility,” Chambers told the Judge. “I apologize profusely.”

Prosecutor Jaimye Ashley told the jury last fall that officers responding to a burglary in progress in April, 2018 found Chambers in possession of a folding knife. She said he was tased and taken into custody when he refused commands to drop the weapon.

A burglary victim told the Court that she and her husband are forever negatively impacted by the break in. “I can’t sleep without the lights on and when I come home I wonder who’s in my house,” she told Billy Sipe.

The jury found Chambers guilty of burglary, aggravated assault and criminal damage. Sipe ordered 10.5 years for the assault and 8.5 years for the burglary, while running a six-month sentence for criminal damage to run concurrent to the burglary count.

Chambers was given credit for 650 days already spent in jail.
