Visitor: I got into trouble again with the law. I quit my job at work but left my tools there. It took me approximately 3.5 hours to get to work on public transportation. So one day my mother agreed to drive me to retrieve my tools. When I went the owner wasn’t there but an employee. This employee pushed me out of the store and called the owner and told her I was there to pick up my tools. I was told to wait outside and the owner will be here in 30 minutes or so. However my 76 year old mother was waiting in her car for me. I didn’t want my mother to wait for me so I went back into the store and this employee started pushing me back outside. So I blocked her hands from touching me again and I brushed past her and grabbed all my tools.
After which I found out that I’ve been charged with assault. The court provided that I complete an anger management course and that these charges will be dropped.
I have completed my anger management course and sent the court house proof of completion of the course. I called the courts today and find out that there is a bench warrant out for me. What should I do?
Pardons Canada: It is good that your assault charge was withdrawn. Since you were fingerprinted for this offence, you will need to apply for a file destruction to remove your prints and police records. As for the bench warrant, it does not seem to make sense why you would have that but you will need to contact the police to find out.
