R. v. F.S. [Court of Queen’s Bench: Calgary]
The client was charged with sexual assault. The client was facing a three-year starting point jail sentence, registration as a sex offender and a criminal record. Tonii Roulston successfully argued numerous applications to protect the client’s right to a fair trial. Tonii Roulston then entered vigorous negotiations with the Crown Prosecutor, arguing that the Crown had no evidence that intercourse had occurred. Tonii Roulston secured a peace bond for her client. The client avoided a lengthy jail sentence, will not be registered as a sex offender, and does not have a criminal record.
Result: Peace Bond
