T.S.

Mr. S. retained our office after Calgary Police arrived at his door with a search warrant. The police had received judicial authorization to search and seize all electronic devices in the client’s home capable of accessing the internet. It became evident upon reviewing the warrant that the officers suspected our client of disseminating child pornography. Mr. Wyman assumed control of the situation and ensured that our client did not provide a statement. He was able to liaise with investigators who were ultimately unable to substantiate their suspicions. As a result, Mr. S. was able to avoid being charged with this most serious of offences.

N.D.

Mr. D. retained our office after being charged with armed robbery. It was alleged that our client entered a Calgary restaurant brandishing a hand gun while masked. The perpetrator pistol whipped an employee and made off with approximately $10,000 in cash. Our client was a former employee of the restaurant who had been terminated earlier in the month. One of the witnesses indicated that our client matched the description of the assailant. When police conducted an interview with our client, Mr. D. provided the authorities with a convoluted alibi. When the officers checked into this alibi it proved to be a fabrication. Charges ensued and our client faced a 4-year prison sentence if convicted. Recognizing that the case hinged on identification the matter was set down for trial. Crown counsel sought to resolve the file by way of lesser sentences but the client was advised he had a strong case. After turning down prior Crown offers which the client was willing to entertain all charges were eventually withdrawn.

B.J.

Mr. J. was charged with break and enter following an incident that took place at his ex-girlfriend’s home in Calgary. Earlier in the evening, Mr. J. had been involved in a fight. It was his belief that the authorities would be attempting to contact him. Given the time of day, he had nowhere to go and thus attended to his ex’s home. He entered the home and woke his ex-girlfriend explaining what had transpired. She was understandably upset and contacted the police. M. J. faced many months in jail if convicted. The matter proceeded to trial on a technical argument. Mr. Wyman argued that the Crown had proven that Mr. J. had broken into the residence, that said, they had failed to show that the client had committed an indictable offence while in the home or had intention to do so. The trial judge agreed with this assessment of the Crown’s case and acquitted our client of all charges on the indictment.

Mr. F. contacted our office after being charged with break and enter as well as mischief to property. The incident was fairly innocuous but serious charges resulted. Our client was from out of town and met some friends for dinner. Prior to attending the restaurant, they parked his vehicle in a parkade. When they returned several hours later the parkade was locked. Rather that locate security, the elected to force their way in through a side door. When they drove to the exit the toll the barrier was down and he elected to drive right through it. Security cameras caught the entire episode and charges were eventually brought. Given that our client was a University student it was imperative that no record result. Mr. Wyman was able to work with the assigned prosecutor over the coming months and resolution was brokered whereby the client made restitution and completed charitable hours. Because of this his charges were withdrawn without the need for a trial.
