Former game show contestant faces charges for alleged attack

Former Game Show Contestant Faces Charges For Alleged Attack

A Virginia woman is being indicted on felony charges after police say she broke into a house and injured a woman inside. And the case is making headlines for a multitude of reasons.



Claire Ogilvie, 36, is being charged with malicious wounding, abduction and breaking and entering while armed after an alleged attack on a Virginia legislator's wife.

Authorities say Ogilvie attacked Delegate David Toscano's wife, Nancy, at the family's home back in February.

WRLH reports, "The Toscanos claim they met her in 2010 but severed ties two years later, when she took an 'unsettling interest' in the family."

But, aside from the fact the case involves a public figure's wife, Ogilvie's sentencing is garnering media attention for another reason, too.

ABC reports Ogilvie was previously a contestant on a couple of popular game shows. She made two appearances on "Jeopardy" in 1998 and won $50,000 on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" in 2005.

Ogilvie remains in jail without bond. She's set to be arraigned Sept. 17.

Neither is the reporter in the piece who claimed that Ogilvies sentencing is drawing media attention. You cang be sentenced for anything until you're tried and found guilty. I don't think he knows what he's talking about.

Wonder if she has a "lifeline" left? If she can call a friend, I hope it's a real good lawyer.

So she's managed to blow both her personal life and her professional in one fell swoop. Pretty sure this kind of thing gets you disbarred.

I love reporting by stupid people. He claims that Ogilvie's sentencing is garnering media attention because of her game show appearances. One problem with that. She hasn't been sentenced for anything because she hasn't been tried for anything. She has been charged and indicted on the felony charges and is currently awaiting trial. It is after the trial that sentencing, if found guilty, will take place. I nominate Matt Moreno as todays uneducated dumbass of the day.
