17 dec Man convicted in crowbar road-rage attack files mistrial application, citing brand brand new opinion that is medical
A doctor opined the target's accidents where due to falling
A person convicted of breaking a female's hands with a crowbar has filed a mistrial application, alleging new medical proof shows the target's accidents had been brought on by dropping, maybe perhaps not being struck.
Jared Eliasson is waiting for sentencing after being convicted earlier in the day in 2010 of the 2017 assault described in court being a morning hours road-rage incident.
However in an application filed in Edmonton Court of Queen's Bench on Wednesday, Eliasson argues the judge in the event should purchase a mistrial, or vacate the convictions and reopen the test to know evidence that is new.
"The newly disclosed X-rays together with viewpoint letter from Dr. McLeod call into question the once suggestion that is uncontroversial the accidents had been brought on by being struck with a steel club," the defence alleges into the application.
