(GREENSTONE, ON) – Once again, hardworking officers with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) based out of Greenstone have made an arrest. Yesterday, Dyane Elaenor Helen Perrault-Kasper was apprehended by police and detained.
She is facing numerous charges based out of Fort Frances including assault and 4 counts of failing to attend for court. Allegations are that she failed to report to the bail supervision program in Fort Frances and violated her probation order.
Perrault-Kasper appeared in a Thunder Bay courtroom this morning via video link while in police custody at the Greenstone OPP detachment. Justice of the Peace Bruce Leaman was presiding over court this morning along with Crown Attorney Emily Delaney and talented duty counsel lawyer Stella Vallelongo. Perrault-Kasper is facing the following criminal charges:
- Breaching bail condition (report to the Treaty Three bail supervision program on Scott Street in Fort Frances).
- Breaching probation.
- Failing to appear in court x4.
The Crown tells the court that they are not consenting to the release of Perrault-Kasper today based on the primary and secondary grounds. Primary grounds means that the Crown believes there is a substantial liklihood for the accused not to return to court, should they be released. Secondary ground concerns means that the Crown believes the liklihood for the accused to either become a public safety concern, re-offend or both is substantial.
Perrault-Kasper is expected to appear in a Fort Frances courtroom in the future to dispose of her outstanding assault charge and 4 failure to appear in court charges that stem out of that area.
Duty counsel requests that Perrault-Kasper return for court tomorrow in Thunder Bay. This will provide her with time to craft a bail plan and make phone calls to help facilitate that.
Perrault-Kasper is ordered to remain in jail until at least tomorrow, where she is scheduled to have another crack at being released. She will be transported to the Thunder Bay Correctional Centre where she is likely to remain until she is released.
