Notable Cases

R v RB

Client was ordered detained after 5 th set of charges before the court including, assault, assault with a weapon, criminal harassment, fraud, multiple breaches of court orders and domestic assault. Was able to secure the clients release arguing both legal error and material change in circumstances by strengthening the plan of supervision and pointing out the weaknesses in the Crown’s cases against the client. Was able to  secure acquittals on two sets of charges at trial, and the Crown ultimately withdrew the rest as all matters related to the same two complainants. Client remains to be free of a criminal record despite the number of matters/charges with which he was faced.

R v MC

Client was charged with attempt murder and numerous firearm offences for a shooting that took place at the entrance of a mall where several shots were fired. Client was charged as youth and identification was the main issue. We persistently requested disclosure which we did not receive, and the first trial date had to be adjourned due to state conduct and ongoing investigation to strengthen their case. We successfully argued a Charter s. 11(b) delay application for a youth attempt murder case. All charges stayed at 17 months and 27 days (under the presumptive ceiling).

R v ZM

Client had been ordered detained after 4 th set of outstanding charges including an attempt murder, serious drug possession and proceeds of crime, breaches of court orders and a domestic assault. Successfully secured the clients release because of a material change in circumstance: namely weaknesses which arose on the Crown’s cases after thorough review of the cases before the court. These frailties ultimately also lead to a reduction of the attempt murder to an aggravated assault. All other sets of charges ultimately withdrawn.
