Our client retained the office after being charged with Fraud over $5000. The allegations were serious as it was alleged that R. defrauded the government out of approximately $38, 000. Mr. P. adamantly denied these allegations and a lengthy trial was set. The Crown’s case was document intensive and the defence was one of forcing the Crown to prove each element of the offence. In the end, this did not occur and Mr. P., who faced a considerable jail sentence, walked away without a conviction.
