R. v. S.L.June 6, 2011
(Calgary, P.C.) Client was charged with a serious home invasion robbery in Calgary. Due to problems exposed through cross-examination at a preliminary inquiry, all charges were withdrawn on the day of trial. Home invasion is a very serious offence that if convicted, starts sentencing considerations at 8 years in jail. What distinguishes "home invasion" from an ordinary break and enter is that the former is essentially a break and enter with violence. The Alberta Court of Appeal has taken a dim view of home invasions, characterizing them as a kind of terrorist act against persons who need to feel safe within their own home sanctuary. David Chow is a criminal lawyer in Calgary who has successfully defended many serious home invasion cases. With the jeopardy on conviction being so perilous, it is important to retain a proven home invasion lawyer.
