R v J.J. [Lethbridge Provincial Court]
Aggravated Assault (Domestic): Conditional Discharge

The client had a prior criminal record for related offences and was concerned about receiving a jail sentence. Tonii Roulston met with the Crown to discuss the file, as a result the client pled guilty to only one charge of assault and received a conditional discharge. The remaining three counts were withdrawn. The client will have no criminal record for the offence.
