R. vs. A.S. – Vancouver Criminal Court
Charge: Breach of Conditional Sentence Order (from Aggravated Assault conviction).
Issue: Whether there was a public interest in proceeding with the Breach allegation, given the rehabilitative steps our client had taken on his own initiative.
Result: Rather than facing termination of our client’s sentence of house arrest and the prospect of incarcaration for the balance of his sentence, Mr. Johmson was able to persuade Crown Counsel to withdraw the allegation of Breach. No jail.
