The jury trial of a Pond Inlet woman wrapped up in the community on Sunday.

In 2013, Lisa Arreak, 32, was charged with three criminal offences related to attempting to procure or solicit a person under 18 to have illicit sexual intercourse with another person.

A 12-member jury was selected to hear the case.

The trial lasted 7 days.

Three witnesses took to the stand during the proceedings, including the co-accused in the case.

The jury found Arreak not guilty.


  • The original version of this story incorrectly stated Lisa Arreakā€™s charges: she faced three charges, not four. A charge related to "living off the avails of prostitution" was dropped before the case went to trial. The Crown called two witnesses, not several.
