Absolute Discharge for mischief

Stan Tessmer got his client an Absolute Discharge (meaning no criminal record and no probation) for a charge of mischief today.  In this case, the defendant was alleged to have caused mischief by intentionally damaging the house and car of the complainiant, but the Judge agreed that his actions were largely motivated by resentment against the defendant for failing to pay himi for work he'd previously done for him.  The judge found, in this context, that the complainant wasn't entitled to restitution since he himself still owed the defendant money and that the proper result was an absolute discharge.
