Our client was charged with Assault Causing Bodily Harm and Mischief after punching the complainant and damaging her door, wall and patio screen. The Crown wanted jail time and 2 years probation. We advised our client to engage in counselling and then provided the Crown with evidence of that counselling. We convinced the Crown to accept a guilty plea to the lesser offence of common assault. The mischief charge was dropped. Our client received an 18 month conditional discharge leaving him without a criminal record.
