Victor Robitaille-Drouin, during his trial in 2018.
The 40-year-old father, however, chose to avoid a second trial, admitting his guilt to a reduced charge of assault causing harm.
During submissions on the sentence, the prosecution asked the judge to impose the same sentence he had already received for the events, i.e. 12 months in prison.
Judge Thibault, however, adhered to the arguments of the defense who requested a conditional discharge.
According to the magistrate, despite the serious injuries suffered by the recalcitrant client, Victor Robitaille-Drouin is eligible for such a measure which spares him a criminal record.
Judge Thibault considers that this was an isolated event, committed in the heat of the moment.
Ex-doorman who now owns his clothing company will get his discharge after making a $3,000 donation to the Pignon Bleu organization and complied with a one-year probation during which he will have to carry out 100 hours of community service.
