R. v. H.M.
Posted in Theft / Fraud / Property Offences andDecember 2, 2014
(Calgary, P.C.). David Chow defends persons charged with serious, trust related property offences, such as theft over. A "trust theft" is an aggravated kind of stealing where it is alleged that the accused abused a position of trust. A trust relationship can be thought of us one of vulnerability, where one person relies on and is exposed to another. Usually trust relationships are employer-employee related. That was the case for HM. She was charged with a serious trust theft of an approximate value of $90,000. This level of loss often results in a jail sentence. In a contested sentencing hearing, David successfully argued for a conditional sentence. Though not an acquittal per se, this is about the best sentence an offender can receive for this kind of offence. In criminal law, sometimes the best outcome is the sentence after the guilty plea. HM did well. For a free consultation with a Calgary trust theft lawyer, call 403.452.8018. David appears throughout Alberta.
