Prolific Thief Avoids Jail on 45th Conviction!

  • 15 April 2015

CC: s.334(b) – Theft


My client attempted to steal a bag full of booze from a liquor store, was apprehended by the clerk, who removed the liquor from him, then he grabbed a large bottle of vodka and ran out the door. In the process, he dropped his wallet and was easily identified and apprehended.


Because he had 44 prior criminal convictions, and he had only just turned 18 years of age, the Crown was seeking a custodial sentence. After some negotiations, my client received a suspended sentence, instead, with probation for a period of one year.
