R. v. E.A.M.
Posted in Assault, Domestic Assault andNovember 26, 2020
(Calgary, P.C. - Domestic Assault). EAM was charged with a single count of domestic assault in a case arising in Calgary. Though the incident was relatively trivial, the Crown and Court takes all allegations of domestic violence very seriously. The reason for this is due in large measure to the impact that domestic violence has on the family (especially children) and the trust relationship that exists between cohabitating persons. The lesson from this case was not so much in skilled lawyering; rather, this is a case about a client who despite some initial reticence, ultimately took advice from his Calgary domestic assault lawyer. David Chow instructed the client that notwithstanding his position, there was a non-criminal record disposition that achieved the end of avoiding criminal consequences while at the same time saving legal fees. Also, this is a situation where the Crown Prosecutor displayed a high level of compassion for the accused in agreeing to the resolution. Though the accused needed to complete some counselling, the resolution also preserved the accused's clean standing and protected his public record from registering a criminal conviction. Ultimately, this client worked hard to resolve the case and at the end of his counselling, expressed how it had changed his life.
