SELECTED CASE LAW
In 2015 NBQB 61, Mr. H was convicted of uttering threats to Mr. T and a charge of harassing phone calls was withdrawn. Mr. H called Mr. T, an engineer, in regard to a jobsite they worked on. Mr. H called Mr. T vulgar names and threatened to break his neck if he did not bring certain information to a meeting. He called several more times, hanging up or leaving messages. Mr. H denied threatening Mr. T.
Mr. H appealed his conviction, requesting a trial with fair representation, arguing there were irregularities in the judge’s behavior, and said the decision was circumstantial.
His appeal was dismissed.
