R. v. D.J.J.
Posted in Assault andFebruary 21, 2020
(Whitehorse, S.C.). DJJ was charged with aggravated assault and assault causing bodily harm arising out of an incident at an establishment in Whitehorse, Yukon. The injuries were serious. The case was scheduled for trial at the Supreme Court of Whitehorse. The primary legal issue in the case revolved around principles relating to the assessing the credibility of the accused and evaluating the whole of the case "beyond a reasonable doubt". In this case, the Crown also tried to argue that the accused had a motive to assault the complainant. The accused hired Calgary criminal lawyer, David Chow, to defend him at trial. The trial lasted four days. The trial was highlighted by the judge excluding the evidence of motive. In the end, the trial judge had serious issues with the credibility and reliability of the crown's primary witness and found the accused "not guilty" of all charges.
