Regina v. F.G.S. [December 2016]- Break and Enter

Section 348 of the Criminal Code of Canada – Break and enter with intent

F.G.S. was evicted from his home as consequence of a breakdown in the relationship with his house mates. Thereafter, F.G.S. allegedly broke into the residence and stole jewellery, electronics, and cash. Unfortunately for F.G.S., a neighbour witnessed the event and identified F.G.S. as the individual who broke into the residence through a window and left with the stolen property.  As a consequence, F.G.S. was arrested and charged with a number of offences including break and enter with intent to commit a criminal offence. Through negotiation with the Crown, Sean Fagan successfully caused all charges to be withdrawn without having to schedule a trial date.
