R. v. K.B. (2014 B.C. Provincial Court)
Client accused of assaulting neighbour after a dispute centring around romantic jealousy relating to Client’s girlfriend. Days before trial, Vancouver Criminal Defence Lawyer Emmet J. Duncan persuaded Crown counsel to adjourn the trial to consider DIVERTING Client out of the criminal justice system ALTOGETHER, and to accept an apology letter and community work service, in addition to the counselling and anger management training Client had already undertaken. Client met with probation services and readily agreed to the community work service and letter of apology. After doing so, charges were DROPPED. Client receives NO CRIMINAL RECORD, which was critically important to Client’s current career as a licensed security guard and Client’s career aspirations to be a Canada Border Services Agent.
