Robbery and Dangerous Driving

The Charges

Robbery – Dangerous Driving – Flight From A Peace Officer

The Result

Counsel for the defendant was successful in revisiting bail after having pleas entered to robbery and dangerous driving. The client was released on bail pending sentence and received a Suspended Sentence of 1 year on joint submission from crown and defence counsel.

This was a strong result considering the BC Court of Appeal has previously commented that 1 year real jail time is the starting point for robbery convictions.
