Our client was a middle aged business professional who had been charged with historical sexual assault allegations against his wife. The couple had engaged in a Bondage, Dominance, submission, sadomasochism (BDSM) relationship. Following the couple’s separation, the complainant asserted that she was forced into this relationship against her will by our client. The allegations were extremely serious as the complainant alleged that the client had burned her with cigars, cut and confined her. The matter was set down for a 2-week trial in which Mr. Wyman cross-examined the complainant for 2.5 days. Defence was able to obtain evidence that the complainant was actively seeking to engage in a new BDSM relationship following her separation from our client. While such evidence is presumptively inadmissible, Mr. Wyman convinced the presiding Justice that material constituted a prior inconsistent statement and was thus admissible. This evidence was key in discrediting the witness. The client was acquitted of all charges. An appeal to the Alberta Court of Appeal followed. This appeal was ultimately abandoned.
