Our client was charged with domestic assault contrary to section 266 of the Criminal Code after the complainant alleged that our client smacked her face, hit her on the back and pulled her hair.  The police could see numerous marks on her including hand prints. Due to the history of the relationship between the disputing parties presented by defense counsel and after successful completion of detox and ongoing counselling as suggested by defense counsel, the Crown agreed to resolve the case by way of Peace Bond and dropping the assault allegations. Our client has no criminal record.
