Woman who burned down own home gets house arrest


Decision date: April 10, 2015 - Winnipeg, MB

Hallsson suffered from depression and a host of mental health issues "that made it difficult for her to control her behaviour," said defence lawyer Scott Newman, noting her condition did not rise to the level she could be considered not criminally responsible for her actions.

Justice James Edmond said it was "unusual" to impose a conditional sentence in an arson case, but agreed it was appropriate in the circumstances.
