R. v. F.S.F.

Posted in Assault and

March 24, 2021

(Hanna P.C. - Weapon).  FSF was charged with possession of a weapon dangerous to the public. Though this was, all things considered, a minor case, the consequences of conviction for FSF were substantial due to business and travel. A criminal record can  be a serious impediment to cross border travel; especially to the United States.  Though FSF had a number of credible defences that in the opinion of this Alberta criminal lawyer would have likely resulted in success at trial, the accused could not risk the possibility of conviction. Additionally, like every accused, FSF had to balance the legal costs of trial.  Balancing all interest, FSF decided to accept the Prosecutor's offer to withdraw the charge in exchange for successful completion of Alternative Measures. The Alternative Measures Program (AMP) is effectively a second chance program that can be offered only by the prosecutor. Completing the program means withdrawal of the charge(s). FSF completed a straightforward term of the program. David Chow had the case brought-forward for immediate withdrawal.  An honest criminal defence lawyer will give advice that takes into consideration both the client's jeopardy in the criminal case and the impact on his or her bank account. When searching for a Calgary criminal lawyer, use all due diligence; for you want to find the criminal lawyer who can defend your case while at the same time being sensitive to your financial situation.
