Our client was charged with second degree murder following an incident that took place in a Calgary house party. It was alleged that the client got into an argument with a woman which then led to blows. The cause of death was blunt force trauma. Following the incident, the client fled and was involved in a carjacking. Police intervened and a high-speed chase ensured. Our client was facing more than 15 years in prison for this incident. The charges were being dealt with by various Prosecution offices throughout the process. In the end, a plea bargain was reached whereby the client would plead guilty to the included offence of Manslaughter as well as a handful of less serious offences in relation to the carjacking. This resolution likely spared our client a decade in jail.
