R. v. K.K.B.
Posted in Assault andFebruary 22, 2021
(Pincher Creek, PC. - Sexual Assault). After a few days of trial KKB was found not guilty of sexual assault. The prosecution ran a very good case, but our criminal justice system recognizes that cross-examination is an effective tool for testing the credibility and reliability of witness testimony/evidence. Sexual assault is a serious offence. The penalty for major sexual assault starts at 3 years in jail (see R. v. Sandercock). If convicted, the accused is also penalized by inclusion on the Sexual Offender Information Registry (SOIR). This registry is a public record that effectively tracks persons convicted of sexual assault by more easily bringing them into the spotlight of public attention. Like so many sexual assault cases, there is no doubt that KKB was difficult for the court; for the case involved respectfully balancing the principles of criminal justice with the interests of the accused and complainant. Also, evaluating the evidence according to principles set out in the Criminal Code and common law in sexual assault cases is not an easy task for the Court.
