Discharge for Assaulting Police Officers


CC: s.129(a) – Resist Arrest, Obstruction x 2, s.270(1)(a) – Assault Police Officer x2


My client interfered with the lawful arrest of her friends after the police were called out to a crazy bar fight. She also assaulted two police officers in the process.


On the day of trial, the Crown offered a resolution proposal. She pleaded guilty to one charge of Obstructing a Peace Officer in the course of his duties and received a Conditional Discharge. All other charges withdrawn. No criminal convictions.
