House Party Bathroom Sexual Assault (Calgary) – Probation

CC: s.271 – Sexual Assault

My client sexually assaulted a woman at a friend’s big 50th birthday house party.  The woman was using the washroom, and when she opened the door to leave, my client, who was standing there, pushed her back into the washroom and closed the door.  He then began shoving his hands down her pants, trying to touch her vagina.  She fought him off and left.

I was able to keep my client out of jail by getting him a Conditional Sentence Order for 6 months, followed by 12 months probation, with a curfew.
