Stabbing Charge Reduced to a Weapon Offence and a Fine

  • 8 April 2015
Charge(s):

CC: s.267(a) – Assault with a Weapon, s.267(b) – Assault Causing Bodily Harm, 145(3) – Breach of Recognizance

Allegations:

Following an altercation with some guys at a house party, my client returned to his residence, retrieved a kitchen knife, and returned to the residence in order to confront a particular individual. During a fight, out on a sidewalk, with two other guys, my client stabbed one of them with this knife in the gut. He was on bail for another incident (also involving an assault with a knife) at the time of this offence, and therefore was in breach of his release conditions.

Result:

On the day of trial, my client accepted the Crown’s proposal to resolve by way of guilty pleas to “possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose” and the breach. All other charges were withdrawn. He paid fines totalling $750. No jail.
