Client acquitted of breaching his recognizance requirement to report in person to the police each Friday. Testified as to a unseasonal “freak” snow storm which prevented him from getting to the police station as not even cabs were running. Testified that he contacted an officer who told him to come in the next day, which he did. Notwithstanding that no evidence confirming weather conditions called by defence the Court believed his testimony and found it was a lawful excuse to the charge.
