A Couple Of High Profile Court Cases Will Be Heard In Toronto Today

Sentencing gets underway today for the woman caught on video throwing a chair off a balcony near the Gardiner Expressway. Marcella Zoia pleaded guilty to one count of mischief causing danger to life in November. She admitted to being the person seen tossing a chair toward the Gardiner Expressway earlier in the year. Prosecutors say they intend to seek a six-month jail sentence, while her lawyer says a suspended sentence is more appropriate.

Meanwhile,  the lead singer of Canadian rock band Hedley is due back in court again this morning. Jacob Hoggard has pleaded not-guilty to three sex-related charges allegedly involving a woman and a teenager. He was charged with sexual assault causing bodily harm and sexual interference last summer. Hoggard has opted to be tried by a jury, but his trial isn’t set to get underway for another year. It’s not clear if he will be in court today.
