Baby Abuse – Conditional Discharge (Charge Withdrawn)


CC: s.266 – Assault


My client was accused of assaulting her boyfriend’s baby by excessively spanking the baby’s front and back parts, causing bruising all over his body, because he would not stop crying. My client initially lied about how the injuries occurred, but later confessed to the truth.


The Crown was seeking a period of incarceration.  However, after extensive arguments in court, supported by expert medical evidence, I succeeded in obtaining for my client a Conditional Discharge, resulting in no criminal record.
