R. v. C.W.
Posted in Theft / Fraud / Property Offences andJanuary 25, 2013
(Calgary, P.C.). Client charged with multiple allegations of fraud in relation to a robbery type incident arising on the C-Train platform in Calgary. After trial, the client was acquitted due to reasonable doubt arising from problematic eyewitness identification. In every criminal trial identification is an essential element of the offence. Many innocent Canadians have been wrongly convicted as a result of erroneous eyewitness identification. It's not enough that the identification is similar or close, for in law the standard is correctness. Close scrutiny must be paid to the description of the perpetrator, cross-referenced against the other evidence to support a correct identification collected by the police. David Chow is a Calgary criminal lawyer who has defended hundreds of clients on the basis of problematic eyewitness identification.
