CORNWALL – A Cornwall woman will be spending another three months in jail for her role in a group, accused of conspiring to murder a Cornwall man.

Jessica Lemieux, 29, was sentenced Monday (June 3) to 90 days in jail after pleading guilty to aggravated assault and forcible confinement. A charge of assault with a weapon was withdrawn by the Crown.

She had a 210 day sentence but was given credit for 80 days of pretrial custody credited at one-and-a-half times for a total of 120 days, according to court records.

Lemieux is banned from owning or having weapons for the rest of her life and also has to submit a DNA sample. She will be on probation for three years after her sentence.

Eight people were charged in the Jan. 7, 2019 attack on a man in a Guy Street home. The victim was bound with duct tape and beaten with a “variety of weapons,” police said.

Several of the accused reached plea deals, one had her charges dropped, and a couple of others are still being heard in the Superior Court of Justice later this month.

Court has placed a publication ban on the name of the victim.
