Vancouver Criminal Lawyer: Joel Whysall
Client charged with Domestic Assault
The accused was arrested following police attendance to a noise complaint. Police took a statement from the girlfriend of the accused who described an assault. Police also observed red marks on the girlfriend consistent with injuries from an assault. The accused was then charged with assault.
The accused was found not guilty. After cross-examination of the complainant revealed inconsistencies and direct examination of the accused showed a legitimate defence of property, the accused was acquitted.
