R. v. K.
Ms. K was involved in a domestic incident with her husband during their first year of marriage. The police were called and Ms. K was arrested. Her husband suffered injuries to his neck, back, shoulders and torso. This was an incredibly stressful experience for Ms. K as she had never been in trouble with the law before. Despite this, as a result of the injuries and suspicion that Ms. K may have lied to the police about her husband threatening her with a sword the Crown was asking for a suspended sentence and probation on an early resolution which meant that Ms. K would have a criminal record.
Through negotiation with the Crown, Ms. Bristow was able to obtain a better position wherein Ms. K would complete some counselling and then the Crown would agree to a conditional discharge. Ms. K was apprehensive about counselling because she did not think she was an angry person. However, she decided to give it a try and not only excelled in the program, she came out recommending that all people in relationships should take PARs counselling.
Once finished with counselling, Ms. Bristow assisted Ms. K in obtaining a conditional discharge which meant that she will not have a criminal record. She had to enter a probation with very modest terms and once the probation was over it would turn into an absolute discharge and Ms. K would be deemed not to be convicted. In the end Ms. K was very happy to put everything behind her and continue working on her relationship with her husband.
