MONTREAL -- A Montreal woman who logged 10,000 calls to 911 over a 15-month span because of her spite for police has been found guilty of public mischief.
Marie-Eve Dean, 23, was convicted today as a judge refused a joint recommendation by the Crown and defence that she get a suspended sentence to be served in the community.
Quebec court Judge Serge Boisvert says Dean is immature, irresponsible, has done nothing to correct her behaviour and is a high risk to reoffend.
Boisvert wants Dean to get psychiatric help before he sentences her on Dec. 17.
Between January 2006 and April 2007, Dean and an accomplice overwhelmed 911 operators and some days clogged the system so real emergency calls couldn't get through.
Dean, accompanied by her mother and sister, gave television cameras the finger as she left the Montreal courthouse.
