UPDATE: Maygan Sensenberger, senator's wife, back in court
Maygan Sensenberger, 23, the wife of Manitoba Liberal Senator Rod Zimmer, will be spending some more time in Saskatoon.
The case been adjourned until Sept. 18, when Senseberger is expected to enter a plea.
After some deliberations, Crown Prosecutor Matthew Miazga consented to ammend the no contact order to allow Sensenberger and Zimmer to contact each other only by telephone, text, email or other electronic communication device, or through a member of a law society.
Maygan Sensenberger, 23, the wife of Manitoba Liberal Senator Rod Zimmer, is back in court this afternoon facing charges of uttering threats and causing a disturbance.
These charges remain after the courts dropped charges of endangering the safety of an aircraft, when Sensenberger caused problems on a flight from Ottawa to Saskatoon late last week.
Defense lawyer Leslie Sullivan is working to amend the current no contact order between Sensenberger and her husband to read "no contact without the consent of Rod Zimmer."
She said this is because Zimmer did not instigate the threat charges against his wife and does not feel threatened or concerned about safety around his wife. The charges came as a result of people who were on the plane.
Sullivan says the couple are "very close, not just romantically but good friends" and that Zimmer wants to support his wife.
She alluded that Sensenberger would not be pleading guilty to the
threats charge, but it was not formally entered in court.
Right now it is a question of whether the judge has jurisdiction to amend the no contact order.
