B.M. was charged with a number of serious offences arising from allegations that he had broken into a Mount Royal Professor’s home (a woman in her 60s) and beat her so severely that both her hands were broken. He was charged with a number of offences including two counts of s. 348(1)(b), break and enter with intent to commit an indictable offence. B.M. was a student at Mount Royal in his last semester of study. B.M. received notification from the University that he had been suspended from school and was banned from campus until such time as a hearing was held. He retained Ms. Fagan to represent him with respect to that hearing with the sole goal of being able to complete his final semester of studies and graduate.
BOTTOM LINE: Ms. Fagan successfully negotiated with the University to have B.M.’s suspension lifted so that he could graduate as scheduled.
