SELECTED CASE LAW
In 2004 BCSC 683, Ms. S appealed her conviction of making harassing phone calls and criminal harassment after calling a real estate agent, Mr. M, and some other people non-stop. She had pleaded guilty at her show cause hearing. Ms. S had previous experiences with the criminal justice system, was unrepresented, and the judge was familiar with her personal circumstances. Upon receiving a sentence of 60 day’s incarceration and three years’ probation, she sought an appeal and new trial. Her appeal was dismissed as her guilty plea had been entered voluntarily and the accused was familiar with the justice system.
