When she returned to the job, the union discovered irregularities in expense claims at the training centre and she was suspended in December 2015. A forensic audit was completed and the results were turned over to police.
The union informed then-premier Selinger. His chief of staff demanded Grant-Jury's resignation from the NDP's re-election planning committee and from her seat on the board of Manitoba Public Insurance.
Grant-Jury's next court appearance is Feb. 13.
