R. v. C.D.C.

September 7, 2021

(Calgary, P.C. - Domestic Assault).  CDC was charged with common assault, arising out of a minor domestic dispute. In Alberta, police are under a policy directive to charge whenever they form reasonable grounds to believe violence (direct or indirect) has occurred in a domestic context.  "Domestic" means that the alleged victim is a person who resides with the accused (eg., husband/wife, parent/child, roommate ect.).  Experienced Alberta criminal lawyers will almost always attempt to resolve these types of charges -- where appropriate -- by way of a non-criminal record disposition, such as a peace bond. This approach is necessary; for it can guarantee no criminal record while be sensitive to the accused's financial circumstances. For instance, trials are uncertain and result in lawyer's charging much higher legal fees. In the opinion of this Calgary criminal lawyer, it is important to consider when hiring your criminal defence lawyer, his/her strategic approach to the case and whether that approach properly takes your budget into account. A lawyer who casually schedules cases for trial may not be acting in your best legal or financial interests.  CDC's case resolved without a criminal record. Also, remember, any criminal defence lawyer can advertise, not every criminal lawyer can properly defend a case.  David Chow is an experienced Calgary criminal lawyer with over two-decades of actually litigating cases in court.
