PARRY SOUND,ON- Linda O’Leary has a new court date.

Linda, wife to celebrity businessmen Kevin O’Leary, was one of two people charged by the OPP last month in the wake of a fatal crash on Lake Joseph back in August.

She’s facing one count of careless operation of a vessel, which contravened the small vessel regulations of the Canada Shipping Act.

Richard Ruh, 57, of Orchard Park, N.Y., has also been charged with failing to exhibit navigation light while underway, in contravention of collision regulations in the Canada Shipping Act.

According to spokesperson Staff Sgt. Carolle Dionne of the OPP, the maximum penalty for the careless operation charge is a fine of $1 million or 18 months imprisonment.

Ruh’s charge does not carry possible prison time, instead being a set fine, treated as a ticket.

The CBC previously reported that her legal team will be making her October 29th court appearance in Parry Sound on her behalf.

In a brief update today, police announced that O’Leary will be appearing on October 31st in the Ontario Court of Justice in Parry Sound.

There were no changes for Ruh.
