Armed Robbery – Time Served & Probation
CC: s.344(1)(b) – Armed Robbery, s.351(2) – Face Masked to Commit an Indictable Offence, s.266 – Assault.
My client had two sets of charges. First, she assaulted a coworker by punching her in the face, then, while on bail for that offence, she attempted to rob a liquor store, armed with an imitation firearm (hand gun).
This is a serious offence, which normally carries a very lengthy period of incarceration. I resolved her matters together by getting out of jail with the time she had served in pre-trial custody, followed by a period of probation.
