As a former crown prosecutor, Mr. Stiles brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Aitken Robertson team.

 

After completing a two-year contract with Alberta Justice and Solicitor General, Mr. Stiles returned to Ontario to finish his masters degree in constitutional law. As a crown, Mr. Stiles became accustomed to rigorous criminal litigation, often acting as lead counsel in cases involving expert witnesses and complex evidentiary issues. He has prosecuted a wide range of offences in various levels of court–from traffic matters to a Queens Bench jury trial. His courtroom experience includes cases involving:
 
  • Arson
  • Mischief
  • Break and enter
  • Robbery
  • Theft (over and under $5000)
  • Auto theft
  • Fraud

 

  • False pretense
  • Uttering threats
  • Extortion
  • Assault (aggravated, assault causing bodily harm and assault with a weapon)

 

  • Sexual offences
  • Criminal harassment
  • Possession of prohibited weapons (tasers, switchblades etc.)
  • Firearms offences
  • Dangerous driving causing death
  • Obstruction of justice
As a crown, Mr. Stiles also dealt with many impaired driving, over .08 and refusal cases. This experience left him with a very thorough understanding of the crown’s proof requirements as well as the range of viable defenses available to the accused when faced with driving-related charges. Also, having completed an LL.M. in constitutional law, Mr. Stiles has a firm grasp of his client’s Charter rights all stages of the criminal process. This is particularly important in the context of impaired driving, where even the slightest breach of the accused’s rights can lead to an acquittal at trial.

 

Mr. Stiles’ combination of education and hands-on experience is a crucial asset when defending against criminal allegations. From minimizing risk to vigorous litigation at trial, Mr. Stiles strives to ensure best outcomes for all his clients.

 

Mr. Stiles is a very proud Trent University alumnus and is thrilled to call Peterborough home again. As an avid outdoorsman and someone who much prefers smaller community living, Peterborough offers the lifestyle and collegial work environment he values.
