Sexual Assault and Impaired Driving Charges Withdrawn
CC: s.271 x 2 – Sexual Assault, s.253(a)
My client, after consuming an inordinate amount of alcohol, sexually assaulted some girls while dancing at a bar. Their boyfriends then tried to instigate a fight with him. He left the bar and attempted to drive away in his vehicle, but was prevented from doing so by an angry mob.
I negotiated a deal whereby he entered pleas of guilty to committing an “indecent act,” instead of sexual assault, and the Crown withdrew both impaired, care/control charges. By way of penalty, he received a conditional discharge. No criminal convictions.
