Peace Bond Refused, Charge Withdrawn in Domestic Violence


CC: s.266 – Assault


My client attacked her husband upon awakening in the morning. She verbally attacked his daughter as well and pushed her. She then struck her husband with an unknown object, causing abrasions to his back and drawing blood.


She refused to accept the Crown’s resolution proposal of a peace bond, insisting instead that she did not assault him, and that he assaulted her. On the morning of the scheduled trial date, the Crown withdrew the charge. No criminal conviction.
