Robbery – Dangerous Driving – Flight From A Peace Officer
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.
