Employee Lies to Employer and to Police About Stealing a Machine – All Charges Withdrawn


CC: s.140(1)(b) – Public Mischief, s.336 – Breach of Trust.


My client lied to his employer about having returned all of the approx. 40 pieces of heavy equipment, which were stored on his property.  Seven years later, his bitter ex-wife informed the police that my client had kept and was using one piece of machinery.


I successfully negotiated the withdrawal of his charges, on the basis that there was no reasonable likelihood of a conviction.
