Witches in Toronto?

December 9, 2009

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered.....that seems to be the essence of a criminal case in Toronto.
A woman, accused of defrauding a lawyer out of tens of thousands of dollars now faces an additional charge. - posing as - a witch.
Police say the woman allegedly told the lawyer she was the embodiment of the spirit of his deceased sister, come back to help him in business.
Under a little used statute of the Criminal Code -- a conviction of pretending to practise witchcraft carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail and-or a 2-thousand dollar fine.
The woman is to appear in court on December 24th.
