Saskatchewan woman gets more jail time for assaulting police officer

A woman who falsely accused a police officer of sexual assault has now been sentenced for assaulting a police officer.

Myrtle Chamakese, 37, of the Pelican Lake First Nation, received three months in jail.

That will be tacked on to the six months she is currently serving for the false accusation.

Court was told Tuesday that Chamakese scratched a Spiritwood RCMP officer as he tried to place her in a patrol car.

Defence lawyer Brent Little said Chamakese is scared of most members of the Spiritwood detachment.
