Client R.F was charged with Indecent Act x2. It was alleged that on two separate occasions, the accused exposed his genitals to the same employee working at the Tim Hortons drive-thru window. After a review of the disclosure and the evidence gathered by police, it was evident that a very poor investigation was conducted by police. They had failed to follow- up and investigate certain leads which may have in fact excluded the R.F. as a suspect. And further, much of the evidence provided by the victim contradicted itself. The events that led up to the alleged exposures, along with the description of the suspect was very vague. Additionally, the events described by the victim did not coincide with the events captured on surveillance footage. After presenting these discrepancies to the Crown Attorney, it was evident that there was a very low probability of conviction. As a result, all charges were withdrawn. No conviction, no criminal record.
