Mr. W. contacted our office regarding a domestic assault with a weapon charge. The charges led from an altercation between Mr. W. and his then girlfriend. It was alleged that the 2 were arguing in the backyard when Mr. W. struck his girlfriend in the head with a wrench. The client agreed that she had been struck with the wrench but submitted that it was by accident. At trial, it became evident that the Crown had issues with their witness. The issues being that she had not been truthful with the police regarding what had in fact transpired. When the truth came out the charges were withdrawn.
