(LONGLAC, ON) – Once again, some of the hardest-working officers in the province have slapped hands into some cuffs and hauled a suspect into their detachment.
Allegations are that on February 13th, 2020, 26-year-old Jocelyne Marie Shea was out on bail on some serious charges that were laid previously. Police believe the woman breached her bail conditions she agreed to follow and during her arrest, it is alleged she assaulted 3 police officers.
Officers with the Greenstone detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police hauled the suspect off to a holding cell where she remained until her court appearance which happened this morning in a Thunder Bay courthouse courtroom. She appeared via video link while still in police custody at the Greenstone detachment.
Her Worship, Justice of the Peace Jennifer Neill was presiding over matters this morning along with Crown Attorney Afton Brown and criminal defence lawyer Aranka Golphy who was working the duty counsel desk. Sheas new charges are:
- Breaching bail conditions.
- Assault police x3.
She is still going through the court system for charges that stemmed from a previous incident that involved children’s lives being endangered allegedly with a firearm. Those charges are:
- Endangering the life of a child.
- Careless use of a firearm.
- Possession of a firearm without a license.
Shea is not granted a release from police custody today. She is likely going to need a strong bail plan which includes at least a surety. It appears that her lawyer of choice is expert legal counsel Kevin Matthews. She will remain in jail and return to court on Wednesday, February 19th, 2020.
Crying erupts as the video link is ended.
