Sentencing delayed for ‘Chair Girl’

Update: The 19-year-old woman who was caught on video throwing a chair from a high-rise in downtown Toronto has had her sentencing hearing delayed.

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

She was arrested after a video circulating online showed a woman throw a chair and other items from a condo balcony, which overlooks a major highway. Zoia admitted to being the person in the video.

Prosecutors are asking for a six-month prison sentence, while Zoia’s lawyer says he’ll seek a suspended sentence. Greg Leslie said six months in prison was too hard for a woman his client’s age.

She is scheduled to appear in court at 10 a.m.
