A woman who insisted the provincial court system had no authority over her was sentenced to house arrest on Friday.

Amy Collins, 36, made headlines in the last month for often challenging and interrupting court proceedings. 

During one appearance, Collins wanted Judge Michael Madden to refer to her as 'My Lady.' 

Collins didn't claim to be a follower of the growing fringe group Freemen of the Land, but she did act like a member. The Freemen are dissidents who reject all but their own authority.

A week ago, Collins was sent for a psychiatric assessment.

She had been charged with failure to attend court and breaches of undertakings. 

On Friday, Collins was sentenced to 48 days' house arrest and 18 months probation.
