R. vs. R.C. – Vancouver Provincial Court

Charges: Assault with a weapon (x3); unlawful confinement;

Issue:  Given the random and bizarre acts of our client, whether it was appropriate for the Court to release our client from custody pending the conclusion of the charges.

Result: Notwithstanding that Crown was strongly opposed to our client’s release, Mr. Gauthier was able to facilitate a release plan that satisfied the Court. After hearing our submissions, the Court released our client from custody on rehabilitative conditions.
