CC: s.266 – Assault, s.88(1) – Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose
My client engaged in a verbal confrontation with an individual after a house party. My client then brandished a baton and threatened this person. He then left the baton in his vehicle and proceeded to push and punch the victim in the head repeatedly. While the victim was on the ground, in a turtle position, my client kicked him. The victim was in too much pain to walk. EMS attended. Among other injuries, the victim suffered bloody lips and a cut below his eye.
One month prior to the scheduled trial date, the Crown sent a letter advising that all charges were stayed (withdrawn). No criminal convictions.
