Jessica Yaniv appeared in a BC Courthouse today on charges of prohibited weapons possession. The charges came after Yaniv, a notorious vexatious litigant and alleged child sexual predator, discharged a taser on Blaire White’s YouTube channel during a livestream.
Tasers are prohibited weapons in Canada, and the appearance of the weapon caused many viewers to tip off the RCMP, who were deployed to Yaniv’s Langley residence that same night, detaining Yaniv and charging the trans activist with two counts of prohibited weapons possession after finding two tasers and two cans of bear spray in the residence.
According to BC courthouse documents, Yaniv pleaded guilty, and courthouse spectators who were present at the hearing report that Yaniv was also ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation prior to a July sentencing date.
The prohibited weapons charge is far from Jessica Yaniv’s only legal woe.
Yaniv is currently facing two civil litigation cases from Rebel News reporters Keean Bexte and David Menzies for assault, with Bexte’s beating also being investigated by the RCMP.
Jessica Yaniv has also landed herself in hot water with Amy Eileen Hamm, a freelance journalist and feminist activist who Yaniv accused of sexual assault. Hamm filed a defamation suit against Yaniv in February 2020.
