C.S. was charged with aggravated assault after DNA hit. It was alleged that C.S. stabbed the complainant in the gut as the complainant tried to get C.S. to leave his home. C. S. was a youth and had no criminal record until he was convicted of a serious offence as an adult. He retained MF. The Crown sought an adult sentence for C.S., and MF represented him in a trial with a judge and jury. Despite the fact that C.S’ DNA was at the scene, the jury acquitted C.S. after MF’s convincing jury address.
