R. vs. B.L. – Victoria Provincial Court

Charges: Assault with a weapon.

Issue: Given the circumstances of the offence and the rehabilitative steps that we were able to guide our client through, whether it was in the public interest for our client to be granted a conditional discharge in this case involving an alcohol fuelled  fight among a group of young men.

Result: Mr. Mines was able to persuade Crown and the Court  to grant our client  a conditional discharge. Our client was placed on probation with a term to continue with counselling and to perform community service work.
