Acquittal Twenty Years after Pleading Guilty

The Quebec Court of Appeal acquitted one of our clients after he pleaded guilty to sexual offences allegedly committed against his stepbrother in the early 1990s. The purported victim having retracted their allegations, the Court determined that the guilty verdict could not be maintained. Mrs. Lida Sara Nouraie and Mr. Nicholas St-Jacques represented the client as part of the Quebec Innocence Project.
