Criminal Law: Sexual Interference & Assault

R. v. W.M.2020 SCC 42 (39114) 

The Chief Justice: “We are all of the view that the appeal must be allowed for the reasons of Justice Miller. The trial judge’s mistake regarding the specific year of the sex offender treatment did not have any material impact on his overall assessment of the similar fact evidence or the accused’s credibility when one considers the trial judge’s reasons as a whole. In the result, no miscarriage of justice occurred. The appeal is allowed and the conviction is restored.”
