Toronto Leonardo DiCaprio slasher sentenced to time in U.S.
The Toronto woman who slashed Leonardo DiCaprio in the face with broken glass at a house party in 2005 has been sentenced to two years in an American prison. Former model Aretha Wilson pleaded no contest to assault with a deadly weapon and will likely serve around six months in state prison, once time served has been factored in; she’s been in a Los Angeles jail since last July. Wilson came to Canada after the attack but was extradited to the U.S. earlier this year.
This isn’t Wilson’s first brush with the law: E! News has reported that she spent a year under house arrest in Toronto and an additional 45 days in a Canadian jail for separate charges. There’s a good chance she’ll be deported back to Canada once she serves her time in the States. DiCaprio, who required surgery after the attack, did not attend the sentencing.
