R. vs. Y.C. – Richmond Provincial Court

Charge: Sexual Assault.
Issue: Whether key evidence would be admissible at trial due to police breaching our client’s Charter rights.
Result: Prior to the start of a 15 day trial, we were able to persuade Crown Counsel to drop the sex assault charge and to proceed on the much less serious offence of voyeurism. Rather than facing a lengthy jail sentence and a deportation order, our client was granted a three month Conditional Sentence and probation. No jail or deportation order.
