A Norfolk County woman who attacked her landlord with a glass frying pan while she was under the influence of fentanyl was sent to jail for 11 months by a Simcoe Ontario Court judge.Elizabeth Carole Anne Schaub, 28, pleaded guilty to assault with a weapon when she recently appeared before Justice Aubrey Hilliard.Schaub admitted she had been using both fentanyl and hydromorphone on April 27 when she assaulted the 66-year-old man who had medical issues and had taken her in.“There were only two rules,” said Hilliard. “(You were to) pay the rent and not do drugs.”Schaub said she is disgusted with herself.“I want to get help. I’ve watched people overdose. I am truly sorry.”Schaub’s lawyer and the assistant Crown attorney agreed to ask for a 15-month sentence due to Schaub’s guilty plea, which prevented her landlord from having to testify and produce medical records.The judge agreed to give her some extra enhanced pre-sentence time served because she had been housed in a detention centre cell and locked down, all before being found guilty.Her 68 days of real time were credited at 120 days, leaving another 11 months to serve in jail.“You’ve seen first-hand overdoses,” Hilliard reminded Schaub.“When you get out you need to keep your son front-of-mind. We’ve seen fentanyl users get clean, get out, start to use again and overdose because their tolerance level has changed.“If you go back to using fentanyl when you get out, it will likely be the last thing you do.”Time served for assaultA Norfolk County man who assaulted a woman and threatened to kill her and her family was given a time-served sentence when he recently appeared in Simcoe’s Ontario Court.Peter Thiessen Dyck, 43, assaulted the woman last April 1.He quickly pleaded guilty to assault and threatening.
