R. v. C.A. [Provincial Court of Alberta, Calgary, February 2019]
C.A. was charged with robbery contrary to section 344 of the Criminal Code; aggravated assault under s. 268 of the Criminal Code and uttering death threats contrary to s. 264.1 of Criminal Code. The complainant alleged that C.A., who he knew socially, attacked and robbed him in an alley leaving him with devastating and permanent damage to his face. C.A.’s position was that the fight was consensual and there was no robbery.
BOTTOM LINE: Ms. Fagan was able to get all charges against C.A. withdrawn pursuant to a 12 month peacebond (i.e. C.A. agreed to keep the peace and be of good behaviour for a year). No conviction was entered.
