Ms. N. was in Banff at her husband’s firm Christmas party. The pair over indulged and left the party following an argument. Once back at their hotel room the dispute intensified and patrons from another room contacted the authorities. When the local RCMP arrived, her husband indicated to the officers that he had been struck during the incident. An assault charge and no contact order ensued. As is the case in most domestic matters, the implementation of a no contact order is problematic as the parties are not permitted to see one another which makes living accommodations problematic. That said, Mr. Wyman was able to meet with the Crown early on and have the charges withdrawn at the first appearance.
