Client G.S. was charged with Sexual Assault. The accused operates a taxi cab and after picking up a group of people, it was alleged that the accused sexually assaulted the front seat passenger. The accused never denied driving the victim in the cab on the evening of the alleged incident, the accused affirmed that he was innocent of all allegations against him. Despite video surveillance and witness testimony, Mr. Batasar fought hard for his client, bringing to the forefront inconsistencies in the victim’s statement along with other weaknesses in the Crown’s case.
As a result, Mr. Batasar was successful in having all charges against the accused withdrawn. No conviction, no criminal record, thus sparing the accused loss of existing livelihood and professional accreditation.
