SELECTED CASE LAW
In 2016 SKQB 177, Ms. W, a 61-year-old woman, had previously been convicted of harassing phone calls, assault on a police officer, public mischief, unlawfully being in a dwelling home, and breaching an undertaking in 2013. The charges were related to a failed relationship with her son and grandchildren. A few days after those charges expired, Ms. W contacted her son. Ms. W had a problem with alcohol and her son did not want her in the lives of his children. He said he did not want contact and she persisted to send him emails. She was charged with harassment and pleaded guilty. She was sentenced to three years’ probation, including a prohibition on alcohol. Ms. W appealed the sentencing decision, but it was dismissed, as the sentence was appropriate, if not lenient.
