I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

I believe you are asking about the accused making a deal or a plea bargain to plead guilty either to a lesser charge or to this charge but getting a reduced sentence.

Is that what you mean?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.

have the accused plead guilty or bargain a lesser charge. I also want to add to my statement with the crown and request the bargain or dismiss the charges. I have learned today that the investigating officer may have misconstrued a portion of what i had said the night of the incident. Is there a way that I am legally able to see his report?
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

No there is not.

But if the accused has a lawyer you can tell the lawyer that you are concerned about this as the accused and the lawyer will see the statement.
