In St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, a client was accused of sexual assault contrary to section 271(1)b) of the Criminal Code. After numerous discussions with the prosecution, we were able to get the client to enter into a recognizance to keep the peace and be of good behavior for a period of 12 months under section 810 of the Criminal Code. This ensured that, despite the seriousness of the charges against him, the client was acquitted of these charges, and therefore was not granted a criminal record. It should be noted that the complainant in the file was in agreement with how the case was resolved.
