Our client was charged with two counts of assault and one of threatening death. On Day 1 of the trial a "witness" to these events was shown to have very faulty memories of the events. The complainant testified and cross examination reserved to today. Upon cross examination, numerous inconsistencies were demonstrated and a clear picture emerged. Our client was merely defending himself against repeated assaults by the complainant. By the end of our cross examination there were significant problems with the Crown's case demonstrated. Our client then testified in a forthright fashion about what had occurred. Over lunch the Crown reassessed its case. Upon resuming before the trial judge the Crown invited the court to dismiss all charges against our client.
