Linda O ‘ Leary, who has been charged with careless operation of a vessel in a boating accident that killed two people, has a court date set for October 29th.
The lawyer for the “Shark Tank” star Kevin O’leary’s wife, calls on the Canadian government’s decision to charge her in the fatal boat, with cash-to-die.
Linda O’leary, was charged Tuesday with careless operation of a vessel in a boat crash in Canada that killed two people in the last month.
Brian Greenspan, O’leary’s lawyer, said it is unfortunate and inappropriate that the police have decided to charge her with a “regulatory offence under the Shipping Act.”

“It has always been a cautious and an experienced boater who collided with an unlit craft on a dark, moonless night,” he said. “The other boat, there was a dark spot on a lake, no house lights on in the neighborhood, not the moon.”

“They are absolutely wrong. This applies to sea-going vessels. The recreational facility is for a maximum $10,000 fine, fine,” he said.
