Charge: Failing to stop at an accident resulting in bodily harm.
Issue: Given the circumstances of the offence, our client’s background and his extreme remorse, whether a jail sentence was warranted.
Result: Mr. Gauthier was ble to direct our client through a course of psychological counselling and was able to persuade Crown counsel to agree to a non-custodial sentence. After hearing Mr. Gauthier’s submissions, the Court sentenced our client to a 12 month conditional sentence. No jail.
