R. v. E.M.E.

(Okotoks, P.C. - Unlawful Confinement). EME was charged with unlawful confinement.  A not guilty plea was entered and the case was scheduled for trial.   The accused claimed absolute innocence. Notwithstanding the claim of innocence, the accused -- understanding the cost and uncertainty in our justice system --  pursued every avenue for a non-criminal record outcome. All attempts were unsuccessful so there was no choice but to set the case for trial. The defence was that the confinement never occurred and that the complainant's report to the police was false.  As the trial neared, a new crown was assigned and the case was withdrawn shortly prior to trial.  Suffice it to say, the evidence lacked credibility and reliability. Though the defence did its level best to avoid scheduling trial, this case is an example of one where there was simply no alternative.  David Chow defended his first criminal case in 1999 and was called to the bar in 2003.  David is a senior Alberta defence lawyer with over two-decades of experience handling criminal cases.
