Charissa Ratcliffe appearing via video in courtroom 104 from the Thunder Bay Police Service Station, after being arrested.

Ratcliffe is here for allegedly failing to appear to a previous court date to deal with outstanding charges that involve possession and use of a stolen credit card.

Ratcliffe looks tired, skinny, and low on energy. She seems drained and sluggish in her responses.

The crown is looking for Ratcliffe’s release conditions to have the following:

  • Do not contact the complainants
  • Keep 100m from complainants home
  • Keep 100m From the businesses where the cards were allegedly used
  • Reside at her home address

The court hears that Ratcliffe has missed court before and has had numerous warrants issued for her arrest.

When asked if there is a problem Ratcliffe is facing which stops her from attending court, Ratcliffe responds with a sluggish slouched “nope”.

Ratcliffe is granted release and has a future court date set for May 25 @ 1:30pm.
