Mr. C was charged with sexual assault following a night of drinking at a female friend’s house. Both consumed a great deal of alcohol and it was alleged that T kissed and groped the complainant without her consent. T had a supportive family and no prior criminal record. The collateral fall out from a sexual assault conviction would be devastating for this young man. After plea negotiations with the assigned Crown Prosecutor, the sexual assault charges were dropped and Mr. C plead guilty to the offence of common assault. After doing so, despite the Crown asking that a conviction being entered on his record, Mr. Wyman was able to persuade the presiding Judge to impose a conditional discharge. This was a fantastic result for the client and ensured that he would not have a criminal record for this unfortunate incident.
