Sam was charged with one count of sexual assault, contrary to section 271 of the Criminal Code of Canada. A conviction would have resulted in a penitentiary sentence and permanent registration as a sex offender.
Sam met a girl on an online dating sight. She alleged that he sexually assaulted her.
We elected trial by judge and jury. We prepared to challenge the credibility and reliability of the complainant and Crown witnesses at a preliminary hearing, through a respectful but rigorously detailed cross-examination.
The sexual assault charge was withdrawn by the Crown following the preliminary hearing.
