Prolific Thief Avoids Jail on 45th Conviction!

  • 15 April 2015
Charge(s):

CC: s.334(b) – Theft

Allegations:

My client attempted to steal a bag full of booze from a liquor store, was apprehended by the clerk, who removed the liquor from him, then he grabbed a large bottle of vodka and ran out the door. In the process, he dropped his wallet and was easily identified and apprehended.

Result:

Because he had 44 prior criminal convictions, and he had only just turned 18 years of age, the Crown was seeking a custodial sentence. After some negotiations, my client received a suspended sentence, instead, with probation for a period of one year.
