Our client was charged with assault after he was caught on video shoving someone to the ground.  Despite our client’s clean background and otherwise good character, the Crown insisted on a guilty plea to Assault.  We refused and set the matter for trial insisting that the matter be resolved by way of a Peace Bond instead.  Prior to the trial date, we again contacted Crown suggesting resolution by way of a Peace Bond.  This time they agreed.  RESULT:  Peace Bond, criminal charge dropped, no criminal record
