Today is court day for the MacIsaac's - Zonda and Alice - I wonder how it's going to go down in Port Hawksbury - I hope something is going to be on the news tonight about it. We'll have to wait and see
Update - 4:30pm - from the Hawk 101.5 in Port Hawksbury:
Local women in court July 28
Wednesday, May 21, 2008 , 11:29
A court date scheduled for two women accused of animal cruelty went ahead without them.
Zonda MacIsaac of Port Hastings and her mother, Alice MacIsaac of Port Hawkesbury were scheduled in Port Hawkesbury provincial court Wednesday to enter pleas.
The charges stem from a seizure at the Celtic Pets rescue facility in West Bay Road run by Zonda MacIsaac and another seizure at the home of former SPCA special constable Alice MacIssac .
Instead a lawyer appeared on their behalf, with the case adjourned in a matter of minutes.
Crown Prosecutor Dan MacRury explained that all charges are summary convictions,which carry a maximum of six months in prison and fines.
MacRury suggests despite public scrutiny, the accused deserve a fair trial.
"This matter has been certainly wide in the press and I think in fairness to the accused,I think at this point in time it's fair that we try the case in court as opposed to the media."
Both Zonda and Alice MacIsaac will return to court on July 28th to enter pleas on four charges each under the Criminal Code and the Animal Cruelty Act.
