Shannon Everett – charged with allegedly assaulting Mayor Rob Ford – is well prepared to defend herself in the court. Lawyer Marie Henein said on Tuesday that the 27-year-old Everett has a strong case and will be confidently presented in the court.
The woman was charged for allegedly throwing a drink and humiliating Mayor Ford on Saturday afternoon at the Taste of Little Italy event. Lawyer Henein showed discontent over mayor’s comments on the situation made outside of court. “The mayor should allow Ms. Everett to have her day in court, where we will vigorously defend the charge against her and a court of law will have the full opportunity to assess Mayor Ford’s credibility,” Henein said in a statement.
The Star has quoted Everett as a young yoga teacher and multimedia developer with no criminal record. Allegedly, Everett responded to the Star on Tuesday morning and directed all the queries to her lawyer who confirmed that Everett works as a multimedia developer in the teaching and learning centre at the University Of Ontario Institute Of Technology in Oshawa. Counselor Doug Ford has shown grave concern for the security of his brother, particularly in the wake of this incident. He said on Monday that the incident in discussion could strengthen the rivals of Mayor Ford and give them courage to take more drastic steps. “The concern is, does this give the green light to any other crazy person out there that wants to throw something hot on him or go after [him with] a weapon?” he said.
