Sentencing for 'Chair Girl' put over until February

Last Updated Jan 14, 2020 at 6:22 pm EDT

Sentencing for the woman caught on video throwing a chair off a balcony near a downtown Toronto highway has been put over until next month.

Marcella Zoia pleaded guilty to one count of mischief causing danger to life in November.

In court on Tuesday, the Crown said it wants to call a witness who will prove Zoia posted the infamous video on social media.

Zoia admitted to being the person seen tossing a chair toward the Gardiner Expressway earlier in the year but denies that she posted it online.

The Crown says there is a witness that can testify that she did post the video. That witness was not in court on Tuesday, and that’s why the sentencing has been delayed until February.

Prosecutors say they intend to seek a six-month jail sentence, while her lawyer says a suspended sentence is more appropriate.

Sentencing will resume Feb. 7.
