A Manitoba senator’s wife is out of court Thursday morning after she pleaded guilty to causing a disturbance on an Air Canada flight.
Maygan Sensenberger, 23, was in Saskatoon domestic violence court. She was also charged with uttering threats against her husband, but the Crown dropped those charges in light of her plea.
Sensenberger now has a one-year probation, where she will have to abide by conditions such as receiving an addictions assessment and attending anger management counseling. All previous conditions, including separation from her husband, 69-year-old Rod Zimmer, have been dropped.
Zimmer told the court he did not feel threatened on the flight. It’s alleged that Sensenberger said she would slit his throat on a flight from Ottawa to Saskatoon last month. The couple say they were arguing about his health, and how it upsets her when he refuses medical care. Sensenberger admitted she had been drinking.
Three years ago, Sensenberger pleaded guilty to impaired driving.
