Re: [Serious] As Long As You're Getting An Education...
said by dirtyjeffer:Quite possibly. And I'm not saying it was the reason, only it could be. Whatever the reason for the conditional dropping of the criminal record in this case, the basis for it was a joint submission by the Crown and the defence. So if it was the reason, would the Crown have agreed with Russell Williams' theoretical character witnesses? Would the judge?
meh...i'm sure Russell Williams could have produced a long list of character witness letters too.
The "This really bad-case example could have done the same thing!" argument is intellectually dishonest. It assumes the worst case scenario simply must be true when it rarely is.
