Natsis to appeal drunk-driving conviction Tuesday

Ontario court of Appeal

TORONTO – A well-known Pembroke dentist is headed to the Ontario Court of Appeal Tuesday, to appeal her drunk driving conviction.

Christy Natsis says the judge in her case made legal errors, so her conviction should be thrown out.

In November of 2015, Natsis was sentenced to five years in prison on convictions of impaired driving and dangerous driving causing death.

Natsis had pleaded not guilty in a crash on Highway 17, near Arnprior, that killed Bryan Casey in 2011.

She he was let out on bail a few weeks after she was sentenced, pending legal challenges.

Natsis is being represented by lawyer Marie Henein, the Toronto lawyer who represented Jian Ghomeshi.
