This was a domestic assault case where I was able to successfully negotiate a withdrawal of all charges.
With the strength of affidavit evidence from both the complainant and a witness, I was able to argue for a withdrawal through the means of two crown-pretrial. Justice was served, and a potentially costly and unfortunate situation was shortened and my client was ultimately spared.
This was a robbery with a firearm case. The allegations were serious, with the Crown alleging that my client held up a grocery store and several employees at gun point.
However, there were huge gaps in the Crown’s case including a choppy surveillance camera, and no straight identification of the assailant. Eventually all charges were withdrawn, as I was able to argue that the Crown would not be able to prove the offence beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.
My client was charged with Assault Causing Bodily Harm. The allegations were such that the alleged victim in this case had suffered a broken jaw by virtue of the assault. This matter went through many Crown pre-trials and judicial pre-trials. Ultimately, the trial was heard over a 3 day period at the Ontario Court of Justice. After cross-examining the Crown’s witnesses and presenting the defence’s case, my client was acquitted of all charges and was a free man.
My client was charged and arrested with Fail to Comply, Assault and Mischief. He had outstanding charges in a different jurisdiction on the same complainant. This was a reverse onus situation where the Crown was asking for my client to be detained because he was a flight risk, and further because there was a high risk of re-offence. I met with my client’s sureties, prepared them for the bail hearing, and was able to successfully put a plan forward for the release of my client and therefore his bail was granted.
In the matter, my client was charged with theft under at a retail store. The evidence against my client was very strong. I met with the Crown on different occasions and was able to argue for extra judicial measures, meaning no criminal record for my client. My client had to make a small donation to a charity and all charges were withdrawn.
