Re: Spousal Assault (Client 840)
Vancouver Criminal Lawyer: Paul C. Doroshenko
Vancouver Police responded to a 911 call made by the wife of the client. The client was having an affair. The complainant alleged that the client put his knee on her back and choked her. She complained of ongoing medical and psychological problems as a result of the alleged assault.
HELD: NOT GUILTY
The credibility of the complainant is shattered following cross-examination by Mr. Doroshenko. The complainant is jealous and vindictive and her evidence cannot be trusted. She omits facts not favorable to her story and denies obvious truths. In light of the complainant’s demonstrably unreliable evidence and the accused’s denial, the accused is found not guilty.
