R. vs. C.L. – Vancouver Provincial Court

Charge: Assault Causing Bodily Harm.
Issue: Given the rehabilitative steps our client had taken under our direction, whether a jail sentence would be the appropriate sentence.
Result: Notwithstanding that our client fractured the complainant’s cheekbone, Mr. Mines was able to persude Crown counsel to make a joint submission to the court for a conditional discharge with 18 months probation. No jail. No criminal conviction.
