Claire Ogilvie Waives Preliminary Hearing

Posted: Updated:

A Charlottesville woman accused of attacking Delegate David Toscano's wife appeared in court Thursday, but her hearing did not happen. Claire Ogilvie, 35, waived her right to a preliminary hearing.

Police allege Ogilvie attacked Nancy Tramontin, Toscano's wife, last February in the Toscano family home. The special prosecutor said that he was happy Tramontin did not have to testify in court Thursday. 

Attorneys say Ogilvie underwent an ordered mental evaluation. She has been behind bars for six months.

“Every case is different. This is a case where we felt it was in our best interest not to ask for bond and it makes everyone feel better on every side of the case,” said Ogilvie’s attorney, Adam Rhea.

Ogilvie’s next court date is August 18.
