Regina v. Kromhout: Novel use of "native sentencing circle"

Jun 2, 1998

A native sentencing circle format was used with a non-native, Caucasian teenager in a vehicular manslaughter case to save him from almost certain incarceration. Instead, following the "circle" the court ordered the young man to speak to high school students about the dangers and consequences of unsafe driving.

* Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results. The amount recovered will vary according to the facts of the individual cases.

Richard, you never cease to amaze me. You find issues that others would easily pass over as not being central to the case or to the client’s liberty, or being just too tough or complex to address…and then you work them like no one else. It is a combination of art and science…and you are both an artist and a scientist. Well done and thank you.
