UPDATE: “Crane Girl” Granted Absolute Discharge

January 11th, 2018 by

If you remember “Crane Girl”, an adventure-seeking woman by the name of Marisa Lazo who scaled a crane in April last year, you may have noticed she is in the news this morning.

Back in April, she made her way to the top of a crane which was estimated to be about 12 storeys high and scaled down a cable which allowed her to sit on the hook of the crane. It took police hours to get to her, and at about 8:30a.m. she was put in handcuffs by the police.

She was later charged with six counts of public mischief by interfering with property in her first court appearance and released on $500 bail, with a condition that she does not enter construction sites or go on rooftops of buildings.

Yesterday, she pleaded guilty to two mischief counts and will pay a victim surcharge. The other charges were withdrawn.
