R. v. R.S.R.
Posted in Assault, Domestic Assault andJanuary 21, 2021
(Airdrie, P.C. - Domestic Assault). RSR was charged with domestic assault arising from a very minor incident. Like many people charged with a domestic violence offence this accused did not have a criminal record. At the outside RSR's Airdrie criminal lawyer -- David Chow -- was very optimistic that the case could be handled without the imposition of a criminal record or the necessity of a trial. When looking to hire a criminal defence lawyer in Alberta or anywhere else it is important to understand that the lawyer is often paid the most amount of money for trial; but since trials are costly, imperfect and inconsistent processes adjudicated by honest and well intending but frail human beings, where possible, they should be avoided. In this view of this Alberta criminal lawyer, if counsel ever tells you that a case is a "slam dunk" or uses words similar, you should be very sceptical; for no trial outcome in our criminal justice system can be guaranteed. In this case, RSR benefited from the immediate attention and fair minded approach of the Crown prosecutor who determined that a peace bond was appropriate and that the it was not necessary for the imposition of a criminal record. In the circumstances, RSR resolved without a criminal record and without seriously damaging his wallet.
