In Laval, a client accused of stealing from her employer, contrary to section 334b)ii) of the Criminal Code, was discharged unconditionally. Stealing from someone with whom the client had a bond of trust is considered an aggravating factor. Our client needed to obtain a discharge in order to avoid a criminal record: she was studying to become a high school teacher and could not continue to do so if she had been convicted. Given her young age, education, future plans and a donation of $400.00, the judge agreed with our suggestion and granted a discharge.
