What is the range of sentence for a single assault, assault and reckless driving charge?

Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada


The following excerpt is from R. v Conway (Reid), 2016 CanLII 11186 (NL PC):

Before making any adjustment for totality, the foregoing would result in a gross sentence of 750 days. Clearly, this is excessive, and requires adjustment. While the entire series of offences could be considered a spree, it can be classed as two events. These are the drunk driving (and related breaches) up to the point of the accident, and then the assault (and related breaches) after the accident. The impaired driving charge will be stayed, following Kienapple v. R., 1974 CanLII 14 (SCC), [1975] 1 S.C.R. 729.
