false-accusationsThe Crown and police won't ever admit how often false accusations occur in sexual assault cases, but it is well known in the criminal defence world that it occurs far more frequently then the public believes. In this case, Mr. Lewandowski was able to secure a withdrawal by demonstrating that the allegation was an outright lie.
aggravated-assaultDomestic assault charges are almost invariable of the "he said she said" variety. Unfortunately, due to prevailing myths about domestic abuse, it is almost always the man that gets charged. In this case, the husband was charged with an aggravated assault, for allegedly causing injuries to his spouse. The Crown wanted two to three years of jail as punishment. After cross-examination, a plea resolution was arranged. The sentence was reduced from three years, to a mere thirty days.
