Amir Khadir's daughter a no-show for first student protest trial

Yalda Machouf-Khadir, the 20-year-old daughter of Quebec Solidaire MNA Amir Khadir, apparently intends to plead guilty to mischief charges stemming from the 2012 student protests.

Machouf-Khadir herself, however, was a no-show, but her lawyer, Pierre Poupart, had asked that she be allowed to plead guilty to trashing the CEGEP du Vieux-Montreal. The judge accepted the request, and she faces sentencing in March.

Poupart told reporters that Machouf-Khadir failed to show up to court today because she was busy studying at a café.

Machouf-Khadir has several other student protest-related trials pending. She's also accused of having occupied a minister's office, assaulting a photographer and a police officer, and blocking the Jacques Cartier and the Champlain bridges.

She's also one of six people being sued by the University of Montreal for $100,000 after dozens of rooms were trashed during another student action in April 2012.
