Domestic Sexual assault

Our client and the complainant were in a domestic relationship. According to the complainant, she and our client were engaged in consensual sexual activity on two occasions where he crossed the line into non-consensual sexual activity. According to our client, all of their sexual activity was entirely consensual. The complainant brought her allegations to the police and our client was charged with sexual assault.

After reviewing the evidence with a neutral judge, we persuaded the prosecution to withdraw the charge in exchange for our client voluntarily entering into a twelve-month peace bond, where he agreed not to communicate with the complainant.

RESULT: The charge of sexual assault was withdrawn and our client entered into a peace bond.
