At last, the saga of Marcella “Chair Girl” Zoia has come to a close. Zoia was sentenced to a $2,000 fine, two years of probation, and 150 hours of community service after pleading guilty to throwing a chair off a downtown condo balcony in February of 2019.
Zoia will not go to jail, and was not handed down any form of social media ban.
Zoia appeared in a widely circulated social media video, throwing a chair over a Toronto high rise balcony in the winter of 2019. She eventually turned herself in to Toronto police and was charged with mischief endangering life, mischief damage to property, and common nuisance.
Suspended sentence not enough. And 4-6 months as proposed by the crown too long. Judge says public nature of crime and the fact is should be punitive. Sentence should fall in lower end of range. A meaningful fine coupled with community service is sufficient.

Luckily, no injuries were reported following the stupidly dangerous incident.
