R.B.

Another former client, Mr. B hired our office to assist with new charges he had incurred. Mr. B. was employed as a sheriff under the Provincial regulations. His job entitled enforcing judicial orders and seizing property of debtors. The charges he had incurred all dealt with the offence of Impersonating a Police Officer. It was alleged that on multiple occasions throughout the city, our client had represented himself to others as an officer and had in fact brandished a prohibited handgun consistent with that of CPS officers. The matter was set for trial and hinged on statutory interpretation affiliated with the roles of an officer and the duties of a sheriff under the relevant regulations. Ultimately our office was successful and the charges were dismissed.

D.L.

Mr. L. was an executive chef at a high-end Calgary restaurant. After a night at a local casino he took a taxi home. He was severely intoxicated and was unable to provide the driver with proper directions. An argument ensued and the client proceeded to berate him with racial slurs. After striking the cab driver our client exited the vehicle and refused to pay the fair. Crown counsel rightfully viewed this file as a hate crime. As the entirety of the transaction was captured on CCTV damage control was the priority. Mr. Wyman coordinated racial sensitivity training for the client as well as an alcohol addiction program. Following completion of the counselling efforts our office negotiated a very favorable resolution whereby our client received a conditional discharge and thus no criminal record for this unfortunate incident.

J.S.

Our office was retained by J’s mother to defend him with respect to charges laid. J. was charged with distribution of Child Pornography as well as uttering threats. The family had never experienced Criminal Proceedings before and desperately sought guidance on the best manner to navigate things. The charges were undoubtedly serious and the prospect of a jail sentence always exist when dealing with offences of this sort. After reviewing the case, Mr. Wyman concluded a strong argument could be made that the search of the client’s phone was a violation of his Charter protected rights. The argument was a persuasive one and Mr. S. was able to avoid a criminal record with respect to these most serious charges.

R.C.

Mr. C. reached out to our office after he had been charged with disseminating intimate images. R. had recently separated from his wife of many years. When he found out that she was seeing dating a new fellow, he had a very difficult time with it. To dissuade this man from dating his ex he made the unfortunate decision to send him several nude photos of his ex. Charges resulted and jail was certainly a possibility. The consequences which flowed from a conviction were substantial as Mr. C. was management with a prominent Calgary corporation. As no defence existed our office worked with Crown counsel to formulate a plea deal. Not only did Mr. C. avoid jail time, he was also able to avoid receiving a criminal record for this indiscretion.
