Fine, instead of Community Service Hours


CC: s.733.1(1) – Breach of Probation Order


My client was accused of failing to complete 50 hours of community service work, ordered by the court, in relation to a probationary sentence imposed for other offences.


My client worked up north in isolated camps and was therefore unable to complete the hours, so he tendered a plea of guilty and ended up paying a fine of $500, instead of doing the community service hours.
