R. v. G.A. [Provincial Court, Calgary, March 2016]
G.A. was out at a popular bar in Calgary consuming alcohol. It was alleged that she got into an altercation with another female and threw a pint glass at her face shattering her front two teeth. G.A. was charged with assault with a weapon and hired Ms. Fagan with a single goal in mind: to walk away without a criminal record. Ms. Fagan successfully argued that this was out of character for her client and that the public interest would be not be offended if a conviction was not entered. The presiding Judge agreed with Ms. Fagan and G.A. received a conditional discharge (i.e. no criminal record.)
