R. vs. G.P. – New Westminster Provincial Court

Charge: Theft Under $5000 (from employer).

Issue: Given the rehabilitative steps we were able to guide our client through, whether it was contrary to the public interest for the court to grant our client a conditional discharge.

Result: Crown counsel’s position was that our client should be sentenced to jail but after considering our client’s positive pre-sentence report and Mr. Mines’ submissions on our client’s behalf, the court granted a conditional dischege. No criminal conviction.
