Break and Enter Charges Reduced to Mischief and a Discharge


CC: s.348(1)(a) – Break and Enter with Intent to Commit an Indictable Offence, s.355(b) – Possession of Stolen Property


My client and a couple of other youths stole a key to their school from a teacher. They broke into the school and rummaged through numerous classrooms, stealing a few items.


On the day of trial, I persuaded the Crown to withdraw the B&E charge and accept a plea to only the PSP charge. My client was granted a conditional discharge. After completing 20 hours of community service, the criminal charges will be withdrawn. No criminal record.
