Marcella Zoia Bio – Wiki

Marcella Zoia nicknamed “Chair Girl”, had pleaded guilty to a charge of mischief endangering life in November.

Her dangerous prank was caught on camera and posted online, where it was viewed hundreds of thousands of times.

Crown prosecutors had sought up to six months in jail for Zoia.

Her sentencing was delayed numerous times, in part due to the coronavirus pandemic, but was finally delivered on Tuesday via teleconference.

Marcella Zoia was sentenced to two years on probation, 150 hours of community service, and fined C$2,000 ($1,485; £1,165).

Age

She is 20 years old.

Marcella Zoia Balcony Stunt

In a video that first appeared on Snapchat, Zoia is seen flinging a chair from a high-rise balcony in February 2019.

The chair appears to hurtle towards the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto, one of the busiest highways in the country, and towards a busy sidewalk. There were no injuries.

The video was then uploaded to Facebook, where it went viral and caught the attention of local authorities, who subsequently identified her and charged her with mischief related offenses.

The stunt won her some notoriety in the city. Zoia even made a brief appearance in a music video by Canadian rapper Drake, which was cut following an outcry on social media.

Case Hirings

A 20-year-old woman nicknamed “Chair Girl,” who was filmed hurling a chair onto a freeway from the balcony of a high-rise building in downtown Toronto has avoided jail time.

Zoia may also be required to attend counseling around the appropriate uses of social media if instructed to do so, a spokesperson for the Ontario Court of Justice told CNN. Her probation order also forbids her from contacting or communicating with two acquaintances.

She pleaded guilty to mischief endangering life in November. The video, filmed alongside Zoia on the same balcony, shows the then-19-year-old throwing a chair dozens of stories down onto a Toronto highway along which cars were driving. It was captioned “Good morning.”

Judge Mara Greene Statement

“Zoia committed a very dangerous act,” judge Mara Greene said in her decision, according to CNN affiliate CTV News. “She did so for her own pleasure and vanity at the moment. It was a selfish act that could have led to disastrous results. It is only by sheer luck that someone was not hurt or killed.”

The judge continued: “In light of Zoia’s very young age, the collateral consequences outlined and her great process through rehabilitation, I find that a sentence should fall in the lower range.”

“While incarceration is extremely more punitive than a fine, it is my view that in this particular case, a meaningful fine, coupled with community service, is sufficiently punitive.”

Instagram

Zoia, who has thousands of followers on Instagram and has continued to post frequently on her social media platforms during the legal proceedings, has attracted tabloid attention in Canada.

Hours after the ruling, she posted an image to Instagram showing her drinking from a bottle alongside a friend, captioned “Toronto’s finest.”

Her sentence was criticized by Toronto’s mayor, John Tory, who told news channel CP24: “She should’ve gone to jail for enough time to send a message to her and everyone else.”
