Our client, Mr. S, was facing several serious assault charges. The complainant, his spouse, alleged that Mr. S had assaulted her a number of times. Mr. S denied these allegations.

In an unfortunate turn of events, Mr. M and three other vehicles ended up in a collision, and Mr. M was charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm.
The evidence collected after Mr. M told the officer he accepted duty counsel as his representation was deemed inadmissible, and the charges of over 80 were dismissed. Mr. M left the courtroom that day without fear that a criminal record might harm his business or his family.

A security guard at a hydro project got a call in the middle of the night from a group of people who said that their truck had slid off the road and needed a tow. He called the police.

Both the impaired and the over 80 charges were dismissed as a result of the the judge ruling that the officer’s testimony was not credible.
