January, 2015 saw a number of trials progress towards conclusions expected later this year.

In particular, there was:

  1. Impaired Driving Care and Control case where the defence of “no care and control” appears to have significant merit;
  2. A sexual assault preliminary hearing, still under-way, where the alleged victim appears to be ‘stretching the truth’ at a minimum;
  3. A domestic assault case where the alleged victim’s story doesn’t add up;
  4. A constitutional challenge to the mandatory driving prohibition laws in “driving while disqualified”;
  5. A case of police brutality where the client was charged with assaulting police and resisting arrest;

Stay tuned for the results of these cases; decisions are expected over the next few months.
