Our client was 22 years old with no criminal record. She was working out of Fort McMurray and went to Canmore with her boyfriend during her days off. After dinner, an argument ensued and she got out of her boyfriend’s truck. After exiting, she saw an RCMP member attempt to conduct a traffic stop. Her boyfriend took off and ultimately caused a major collision. When she arrived at the scene, she made the foolish decision to take off her boyfriend’s license plate. Police stopped her in the act and charged her with obstruction of Justice. While there is a significant risk of jail for such offences, our office was able to work with Crown counsel and negotiate a resolution whereby the client received a 6-month Conditional Discharge. This was a favorable result given that C avoided a criminal record.
