Domestic Violence Charge Withdrawn


CC: s.266 – Assault (domestic)


My client assaulted his wife by slapping her in the face, pulling her hair and twisting her arm, after she continued to refuse to provide him with a credit card, so that he could purchase more alcohol.


After a few weeks of involvement by Child and Family Services, to inquire into the safety of the complainant and their 3 children, and his commitment to residential treatment for his alcohol addiction, the Crown finally conceded to resolve this matter by way of a Peace Bond, and withdrew the charge. No criminal conviction.
