Joline Rochelle Jacques, 19, has been released on a recognizance and will make her next appearance in Assiniboia provincial court on Thursday, Dec. 12.

In Moose Jaw provincial court recently, Judge Brian Hendrickson agreed to release Jacques into the custody of her father in Lafleche, Sask., which is 45 kilometres west of Assiniboia. Her father appeared by phone and said he would act as an assurity for his daughter and would ensure she follows her release conditions; he also agreed to take her now that she was on new medication.

Jacques will have to keep the peace and be of good behaviour, reside with her father, report to a bail supervisor, not consume alcohol or non-prescription drugs or be in a place that sells either, provide samples of her breath or urine to police when asked, see a mental health counsellor, have no contact with her victim, and not possess weapons.

Jacques is alleged to have caused a disturbance at the Capone's Hideaway Motel on Oct. 21. Through an investigation, officers learned she had been in possession of a weapon (knife) and had caused a disturbance. Police arrested her and took her into custody.  

She faces charges of allegedly uttering a threat, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, assault with a weapon, and breach of an undertaking.

Moose Jaw provincial court next meets on Dec. 4.
