Marcella Zoia Is Finally Appearing In Court This Month And Her Charges Are Serious

Toronto’s chair girl is finally heading to court this month. Marcella Zoia rose to infamy in February after a video of her tossing a chair off of a Toronto high-rise balcony went viral. Zoia has a knack for doing and saying things on social media that could potentially hurt her case. Whether you've been following along or not, you have to admit that the 19-year-old knows how to stay relevant.

Between her drunk Instagram story adventures to skipping her court date for a modelling gig, it's clear that Zoia has managed to stay busy over the last few months. With her Aug. 29 court date fast approaching, that fun may soon come to an end.

According to Newstalk1010, Zoia is facing charges of mischief endangering life, mischief to damage to property over $5000 and being a common nuisance in connection to the viral chair-throwing incident at York and Harbour Streets.

However, even though she is facing numerous criminal charges, Zoia appears to be living her best life:

I mean, if she is worried, she is doing an excellent job of hiding it:

Judging by the way she has been living, you would think that her charges aren’t that serious, but you would be wrong.

According to Toronto’s Mischief Lawyer, Zoia could face jail time if the Crown elects to proceed by indictment on her mischief to damage property over $5000 charges. The Canadian Criminal Code allows a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison if an individual is convicted on indictment charges. In just a couple short weeks, we will finally find out what Toronto's chair girl is up against.
