Regina v. D.K.J. [Provincial Court – February 2012]

DKJ was charged with sexually assaulting his adult step-daughter. DKJ’s account of events and that of the complainant were diametrically opposed – the critical issue was that of “consent”. DKJ maintained his innocence and the matter scheduled for trial. On the date scheduled for trial the complainant had a complete change of heart with respect to what actually transpired.

Bottom Line: Patrick Fagan was successful in having all charges completely withdrawn.
