Update: September 27 2013 I have heard from a reliable source that the person holding the cam and who recorded the fight video/encouraged/provoked fight, Jessie Legassie, has now been charged. I will update this petition with the actual charge once I am able to get that information. Thank you to all those who signed the petition, contacted the Saint John, New Brunswick Police and the media regarding her being charged. There will be justice for both Amber and her unborn baby girl thanks to caring strangers like you.
I have been approached by people who are concerned that Jessie Legassie has not been charged with any criminal offense in her part of recording a fight between Brittany Corning (Leavitt) and a pregnant girl named Amber. Jessie recorded the fight BEFORE it started and continued until she told Brittany to stop and said that she would take care of the police if Amber called them. Throughout the video which is extremely violent, Jessie is heard encouraging and provoking the fight while she makes sure to continue filming the fight.
According to Jessie she didn’t realize it was recording the entire fight but then if that was the case, why is the cam in the right place in front of Jessie the entire fight? She was aware the cam was recording the fight. Jessie was aware the fight was going to happen before she got out of the blue Ford Ranger which is why she was recording as her door was opening. Both Jessie and Brittany have continued to harass and threaten Amber and her baby according to credible sources.
We think that Jessie should be charged for recording the video, helping to plan the fight and for encouraging the abuser to punch and kick a pregnant mother. Jessie is a 30 yo mother from Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. We want justice for both Amber and her unborn daughter. Please help by signing the petition to go to the Chief of Police in Saint John, New Brunswick asking for charges against Jessie Legassie.
