R. v. N.
Mr. N was 47 years old and did not have a criminal record. He was charged with two counts of assault cause bodily harm against the mother of his child which dated back to 2001. He was also charged with a more recent assault, forcible entry and criminal harassment lasting from 2004-2013 against the same woman. Being charged alone put Mr. N into a deep depression so when he was acquitted of all of his charges it felt like the beginning of a very positive change in his life.
Mr. N’s jury trial was a straight forward case; a he-said, she-said argument. The complainant was on the stand for two days. Ms. Bristow conducted a skilled and calculated cross-examination, diminishing the complainant’s credibility and reliability. By the end of it, Ms. Bristow was confident that the jury saw right through the complainant’s lies.
Mr. N took the stand in his defence. When Ms. Bristow and Mr. N first began preparing for his trial Mr. N was nervous about testifying. However, after hours of preparation Mr. N’s hard work paid off as he was able to tell his side of the story in a relaxed and collected manner.
The jury took less than two hours deliberating before they came back with a not guilty verdict on all give counts. Mr. N and his family were ecstatic to finally have this all behind them and have his life back.
