A Case in Mistaken Identity

Jillian Williamson, Associate of Der Burgis, blogs about mistaken identity. Ms. Williamson was successful in defending her client on the issue of mistaken identity against charges of aggravated assault and assault with a weapon. (Names have been changed to protect the identities of those involved.) 

Jury misunderstood Reasonable Doubt

A jury convicted our client, Assmar Shlah, of second-degree murder recently. The evidence tendered by the Crown was weak at best after a seven-week trial. Our criminal law requires that guilt be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. We recognize that most people don't understand how to interpret the term "reasonable doubt".
