School Bus Driver Charged with Assaulting Minor

Charge: Assault
Lawyer: Motevalli, Hossein
Result: Charge withdrawn

In June 2016, an experienced school bus driver in the City of Toronto was driving students home and pulled the bus over to make sure students remained in their seats and adhered to safety rules. After they started driving, the complainant began screaming, refused to remain seated and hit the driver in the head. When they pulled into the first drop-off location, the driver had to restrain the complainant who was attempting to exit the bus through a window and the rear emergency exit door.

The complainant’s mother took her son to the hospital where police attended and took his statement. Police investigated the allegations before issuing a warrant for the driver’s arrest. Upon her return from vacation, two months after the alleged complaint was made, she was detained at the airport and charged for allegedly assaulting the complainant.

The bus driver faced imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years as a result of these allegations. This client contacted Motevalli Law Group and after several pretrial discussions, the matter successfully resolved in September 2017 with the crown withdrawing the charge.

Boyfriend Charged with Assault, Harassment and Uttering Threats

Charge: Assault, Harassment and Utter Threat
Lawyer: Motevalli, Hossein
Result: Charge withdrawn

In August 2016, a maintenance worker was going through some difficulties with his girlfriend and learned she had been confiding in a co-worker about their relationship. He called her place of employment and asked the co-worker not to speak negatively about him and to stop discussing their relationship. During the next two months, the co-worker was still involving herself in his personal matters so he called and visited her at work, requesting she not speak with his girlfriend about their relationship.

In November 2016, the co-worker contacted police alleging the boyfriend had been harassing her, threatened her several times and assaulted her late one night while on the bus home from work. Police investigated the allegations then arrested and charged the boyfriend less than a week later for assault, criminal harassment and five counts of uttering threats.

The boyfriend faced imprisonment for a term exceeding 10 years as a result of the allegations. Hossein Motevalli of Motevalli Law Group was successful in having the charges dropped. After receiving and reviewing all the disclosure, holding several pretrial discussions with the crown and conducting a judicial pre-trial, the matter resolved in November 2017 with all charges being withdrawn.

Mental Health Diversion Appropriate for Father of Three

Charge: Mischeif
Lawyer: Motevalli, Hossein
Result: Charge withdrawn

In July 2016, a father of three with a history mental health issues was on his way home from work at 11:00PM, on the GO train. The train entered Union Station as thousands of fans from a Blue Jays game were gathered on the platforms at track level. All patrons on the train were prevented from unloading as the doors failed to open for more than 12 minutes. Learning of a family emergency, the father was desperate to exit as soon as possible.

The father used an axe and tools located on the train to break one of the door windows and pry the doors open to exit the train. Witnesses activated the personally emergency assistance alarm and several Go Transit employees responded to find the father on the platform surrounded by shattered glass. A summons was issued for two by-law infractions that was replaced with a new summons served in August 2016 where he then faced a charge of mischief for causing $4,000.00 in damages.

The father faced imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years as a result of the allegations. Motevalli Law Group was determined to help this client. After holding pretrial discussions with the crown, the matter was appropriately diverted through mental health court and resolved in January 2018 with the charge being withdrawn.

Fighting for Survival Leads to Assault Charge

Charge: Assault et al
Lawyer: Motevalli, Hossein
Result: Charge withdrawn

In April 2017, our client had been living on the streets of Toronto utilizing the shelter system for more than 8 years. He had been staying at the Seaton House shelter for a number of weeks when concerns with another much larger resident quickly escalated to verbal arguments and several incidents were documented by shelter management. Although warnings were issued to both residents, a verbal argument one day led to a fight between both males on the shelter grounds.

Recognizing how dangerous the shelter system is from fighting for his survival over many years, our client fought the much larger resident in fear he may get seriously injured if he did nothing. When security arrived, they separated the men and contacted emergency services. Police arrested our client for allegedly assaulting the other male, based on information provided by security and the complainant himself, who was taken to hospital with very minor injuries then released the same day.

Our client was unable to receive the essential services he required from being banned from the shelter and faced imprisonment for a term not exceeding 5 years as a result of the allegations. After reviewing all the disclosure and holding many pretrial discussions and a judicial pretrial, the matter successfully resolved in March 2018 with the crown withdrawing the charge. Another success for Motevalli Law Group and their client!
