Chartier had been the mastermind of an elaborate online catfishing scheme involving NBA player Chris "Birdman" Andersen and social media celebrity and model Paris Dylan.
Chartier eventually served a year behind bars for orchestrating it, and headlines about the star-studded story were sensational.
"When I looked online to see what the media coverage had been of this story, I was shocked at the stereotyping that I saw and I just instinctively knew that there must be more to the story and more to Shelly," Lisa Jackson tells The Current's Anna Maria Tremonti.
"She just seemed like this evil, one-dimensional master manipulator."
"I knew Shelly was an incredibly, intelligent, unique, fascinating person who had not been given her say in the media," says Jackson.
