(GERALDTON, ON) – GERALDTON MAN HEADING TO THUNDER BAY JAIL FOR ASSAULT ON WOMAN.
Appearing this Family Day Monday February 18,2019 via video from the Greenstone OPP Station at in Courtroom 104 is 23 year old JEFF O’GUSHING.
O’GUSHING was arrested early this morning for allegedly assaulting a young woman.
Her Worship, Zelda Kitchekeesic is presiding. Provincial Crown Katrina Van Kessel is here along with Duty Counsel Marilyn Thompson.
Crown Attorney Van Kessel is not consenting to release. Duty Counsel Marilyn Thompson who has spent almost 30 years as Duty Counsel has no bail plan prepared. She just asks for a Section 517 publication ban. This stupidity is laughable. No wonder she’s spent 30 years as a Duty Counsel.
O’GUSHING is heading to the Thunder Bay Jail. He will appear by video tomorrow. Maybe he’ll get someone a bit wiser than Thompson as Duty Counsel.
