Woman Given Jail Time For Vicious Assault

A 23-year-old woman will spend 90 days behind bars for her part in a brutal assault on another woman in Windsor.

Jessica Millar entered a guilty plea to assault with a weapon and assault after a 19-year-old woman was held captive in an University Ave. East apartment in May 2017.

Millar admitted to shooting her with a pellet gun as well as punching and kicking her.

Justice Kirk Munroe told court the attacks on the woman were unsettling and the effect was profound to the extent the victim's life has been destroyed.

But he added Millar's role was at the outset and she was never involved in the escalating violence of stabbing, cutting and burning of the victim.

Munroe added he was troubled that Millar made no apology or expressed any sorrow for the victim.

The 90 day sentence is to be served on weekends and includes a two year probation.

He called it the lower end of an acceptable sentence, noting it had been a joint submission from Crown and Defence.

In addition, Millar is banned from possessing weapons for 10 years and must supply a DNA sample for the registry.

Justice Munroe said five other people have been convicted and sentenced in connection to the crime.
