Not Guilty in Homicide Case

Peck and Company lawyers Jeff Campbell and Mark Nohra, assisted by law student Harneel Hundal, secured an acquittal for a Kelowna man in a recent jury trial.  The client was tried by a Supreme Court Judge and Jury on a charge of manslaughter, based on an altercation between a group of young people and another male outside a Kelowna restaurant.  Campbell and Nohra raised evidence that the other party was threatening and aggressive, and that their client had acted in self-defence.   A number of eyewitnesses described how the event unfolded, testifying that the defendant had acted to protect others from a dangerous confrontation.  The jury returned a verdict of not guilty.
