Cape Breton Post - - Cape Breton -

SYD­NEY — A Scotch­town woman charged ear­lier this week with as­sault of­fences is to un­dergo a 30-day psy­chi­atric eval­u­a­tion.

Jo­ce­lyn Ar­lene Fa­hey, 42, of Cashin Cres­cent, is charged with as­sault, ag­gra­vated as­sault and breach­ing a court or­der. The of­fences in­volve a male com­plainant and were al­leged to have been com­mit­ted May 9 in Scotch­town.

The as­sess­ment, which will de­ter­mine Fa­hey’s fit­ness to stand trial and criminal re­spon­si­bil­ity, will be car­ried out at the East Coast Foren­sic Hospi­tal in Dart­mouth.

Fa­hey is now to re­turn to court June 8.
