In Montreal, a client accused of assault with a weapon, assault and uttering threats in the context of a road rage received a conditional discharge following a lengthy legal battle. In this matter, despite the absence of a criminal record and a highly favorable presentencing report, the prosecutor decided to plead against the granting of a discharge given the serious consequences suffered by the victim. In her arguments, the prosecutor relied on similar case law, which showed little leniency granted by the Court to individuals who commit this type of crime. Finally, the judge ruled in our lawyer’s favor, thus ensuring that despite the seriousness of the charges, the client succeeded in avoiding a criminal record.
