Domestic Violence and Firearms – Peace Bond (charges withdrawn)


CC: s.266 – Assault, s.86(2) x 2 – Improper Storage of Firearms (Shotgun & Rifle), s.91(1) x 2 – Possess Firearms Without a License, s.264.1(1) – Uttering Threats.


My client was accused of assaulting his wife by repeatedly punching her and ripping out her hair.  He also threatened to kill her father. Police found two improperly stored firearms (a shotgun and a rifle) in his residence.


On the day of trial, I resolved his matters with a Peace Bond, resulting in the immediate withdrawal of all criminal charges. No record.
