Woman with a knife chases husband in barber shop

Last updated 2018 10 24

Woman with a knife chases husband in barber shop, got tasered, wound up in court, pleaded not guilty, then guilty, received conditional sentence, broke conditions, was under arrest until bail hearing, and there the newspaper trail ends.

It would be nice to know whether it all came to a good end and how it did end, but the woman even argued with a judge that she could see nothing wrong with what she did.  It seems that things are far from over, and that we may hear about her again, as time goes by.

All is well that ends well, but this was far from over.  She received,

“…a 12-month conditional sentence to be served in her home under strict conditions, among them that she have no contact with her husband, Bob Doucette, and that any visits with their daughter be arranged by a third party.

But Crown prosecutor Kelly Winchester alleges that last Saturday night, two days after the judge sentenced her, she went to a Sussex bar and was found by police chatting with her husband and having a cigarette in the same smoking room….”

“You don’t pay attention. You don’t get it,” [Judge] Tonning told her. “I’m thinking of a psychological assessment here.”

Doucette will be in Hampton provincial court for a bail hearing on Tuesday. She will stay locked up until then.  Read more
