Who does one turn to when the crown is not listening to your concerns?
State/Country relating to question: Canada
That's a good question. Have charges been laid?
for uttering threats and assault charges
against my scommon law spouse
charges against him
And how is the crown not listening to you? What is going on?
the crown said he was deserved to be punished
then i went for a sit down meeting with the co-crown and she said ...long story.... but my partner works in a "dry camp" and she said it was easy to get alcohol or drugs in there....which is not the case. they fly in charter and their bags are checked
and then she said nothing was stopping for me to send him a message...although there is a no contact order against him from contacting me directly or indirecly
she didnt even listen to my wishes for having contact
So what are your concerns? Do you want to see him convicted? Do you want contact?
yes, i want contact....we have lived together for 11 1/2 years. she is painting a picture in her mind. How can she say those things?
I talked to victim services and they couldn't believe what she said
What do you want to see happen to him?
All I need to know is how to make a complaint against crown
for a 810 peace bond
you want the crown to withdraw the charges against him in exchange for a peace bond?
but i want to know who to contact also on their behavior
the behavior of the crown
OK, if you're the alleged victim here, then the crown needs your co-operation and testimony to have any chance of conviction.
i dont want to convict
So, if you make it clear to the victim/witness people how upset you are with the crown and that you aren't going to co-operate with the crown to convict, then they'll tell the crown that because they usually work closely.
the crown does....and they have made inappropriate comments to me
And if the crown then believes that they have no reasonable chance of conviction without your help, they'll offer him a good deal, perhaps a peace bond.
But you can't get the charges withdrawn of your own conviction, I'm sure you know that by now.
As far as the complaining about the crown, there's absolutely no point. It won't get you what you want. After all this is done you can call the ombudsman or government services, but you'll get no leverage over the crown at this point by complaining about them.
who do i complain to about the crown
in domestic violence cases, the victim/complainant often doesn't want the accused to be convicted.
But it's the crown's charge to lay and pursue.
So laying any kind of complaint now is unlikely to even be processed until the criminal case is done.
You can have contact with the accused's criminal lawyer if you wish, there's nothing stopping that.
and the crown saying i can send messages through friends or family members is ok?
I suppose so. There will be an order that he not contact you, but there's nothing stopping you from contacting him.
That's why I recommended contacting his lawyer, it's an extra layer of security of communication.
can i tell the judge what they said if i stand up for changes in the no contact order which was set by police
Sure, but it won't change anything because it's not relevant to the criminal charge or the restrictions upon hi.
ok thank you for your time. im off to sleep
You're welcome. I look forward to your Accept, after which you can leave feedback if you wish.
