Our Client Found Not Guilty of Aggravated Assault After Full Trial in BC Supreme Court

We are delighted to report our victory on behalf of a client who was accused of a serious aggravated assault in Downtown Vancouver that was the subject of much media attention. Our client was found not guilty of the offence after a full trial. In advancing our client’s interests, we also successfully argued in a pre-trial motion that our client’s rights were breached when the Vancouver Police Department obtained information from a database maintained by the BarWatch program without a warrant, which is the first time that this argument had ever been made.
