A famous anti-Covid-restriction advocate has been found not guilty on multiple charges.
Chris (Sky) Saccoccia has been acquitted on charges of threatening to kill the premier of Ontario, as well as driving his car into a police officer.
Saccoccia learned Tuesday that he is not guilty of all charges, in the eyes of the Ontario court system. It is unclear whether the crown plans on appealing the verdict.
Sky was charged in 2021 with multiple offences including three counts of uttering death threats, one count of assaulting a peace officer with a weapon, and one count of dangerous operation of a conveyance.
The news made its way its across social media, partly due to lawyer-turned-amateur-journalist Caryma Sa’d closely tracking the trial.
In response to the not guilty verdict, Sa’d added: “hate to say I told you so.”
Saccoccia and Sa’d have long been at odds, with the lawyer previously taking credit for having the anti-masker’s Instagram and Twitter page suspended.
