Client K.D. was charged with Assault x2, Mischief Over $5000 and Uttering Threats to Cause Death. It was alleged that during a night out at a casino with friends, client K.D. became involved in a physical altercation with a security officer at the casino, causing injury to the officer. Threats were also uttered by the accused towards the officer during the altercation. In a state of rage, client K.D. then proceeded to damage a nearby slot machine by punching it numerous times, resulting in substantial damage to the machine. Due to the lengthy criminal history of the accused, who had previously served a lengthy sentence in a Federal penitentiary for firearms- related offences and kidnapping, the Crown Attorney was seeking a period of custody on a plea to the charges. After mounting an aggressive defence, Mr. Batasar was able to have the Judge agree to have K.D.’s matter dealt with via probation and restitution rather than by way of a custodial sentence. NO JAIL.
