Domestic assault prosecutions are extremely common in Ottawa's courts. In fact, there is a specific courtroom dedicated to the daily prosecution of these disputes. It is all too common that a few days after the complaint is made, the complainant wants to back out and have the charges dropped. Unfortunately, in Canadian law, it is not the complainant who is pushing towards prosecution, but rather the Crown. Accordingly, the complainant's desire to "drop" the charges, typically falls on deaf ears. Ultimately, the Crown proceeds with the prosecution despite a reluctant complainant, arguing that the public interest in the prosecution outweighs the specific interests of the complainant. Thus, on a day to day basis, the domestic assault court hears recantation after recantation. In fact, there are a whole set of evidentiary tools in the Crown's arsenal to get around the recanting witness, and attempt to prove their case without their help. As an accused who is charged with a domestic assault, it is imperative that you seek out legal advice at the earliest opportunity. What might at first appear to be a good idea (i.e. pursuing contact with the complainant) may serve to completely backfire and destroy any chances of an acquittal. Paul Lewandowski has over 9 years of experience successfully defending domestic assaults. Guilty or not, you are entitled to a thorough defence to ensure that your rights are protected.
