Found Not Guilty of Major Sexual Assault


CC: s.271 – Sexual Assault


My client was invited into the complainant’s apartment, where he forced himself upon her and allegedly sexually assaulted her in her kitchen. There was full penile penetration from behind, without a condom. The Crown was seeking three years incarceration.


The matter went to trial at the Court of Queen’s Bench, after a preliminary inquiry. The judge found him “Not Guilty,” and acquitted him on the basis of reasonable doubt, stemming from exculpatory DNA evidence. No criminal conviction.
