Peter Pocklington was sentenced to six months of home detention for making false statements in his Southern California bankruptcy case. He was also sentenced to two years of probation in a Riverside courtroom yesterday.

Pocklington pleaded guilty to perjury in May and could have received a maximum 10-year sentence.

The former Edmontonian was arrested last year at his Palm Desert home. Prosecutors said he concealed assets during bankruptcy proceedings in which he claimed to have about $3,000 but owed more than $19 million.
