Mr. A. hired Mr. Wyman to defend him with respect to a sexual assault charge. The complainant was our client’s longtime ex-girlfriend. Following their separation Mr. A. had brought some belongings by the complainant’s home. When he attended to do so it was alleged that non-consensual sex ensued. When officers took him into custody Mr. A. made several remarks that could be deemed incriminating in nature. The stakes were high as a prison sentence was an inevitability if convicted. At trial, Mr. Wyman was able to successfully have the client’s statement thrown out. Following this Crown counsel was anxious to attempt to resolve the file by way of a guilty plea to a lesser included offence. When this was denied a deal was worked out by Mr. Wyman whereby the client would complete a counseling program. Once this was done the charges were withdrawn.
