(Cochrane, P.C. - Domestic Assault). SYB was charged with domestic assault in relation to a charge arising in the jurisdiction of Cochrane, Alberta. This prosecution was one where the Crown quickly screened the file, identified weakness in the prosecution, communicated with the complainant and properly permitted the complainant to have a voice in the process. Though the accused had a very credible trial defence, the Crown offered to resolve the case in a manner that SYB would not suffer a criminal record. Understanding the imperfection and uncertainty in our criminal justice system, SYB agreed with the advice of his/her Cochrane criminal lawyer that it was too risky to take the case to trial. Ultimately, the accused accepted a peace bond and the criminal charge was withdrawn. A peace bond constitutes a legal mechanism whereby the accused agrees to keep the peace and be of good behaviour and to comply with the terms of the bond. Common terms include "no contact", area restrictions, abstain clauses and counselling. For SYB the Crown understood the weaknesses in its case and after consulting with the complainant, agreed to a peace bond on less onerous than usual conditions.
