R. v. A.I.
Posted in Drug Offences andNovember 20, 2015
(Calgary, Q.B.) The client was prosecuted for two counts of trafficking cocaine to an undercover police officer. Cocaine is a CDSA, Schedule 1 substance, that attracts a starting point for possession for the purpose of trafficking of 3 years in jail. At trial, the accused raised a number of defences that left the judge with a reasonable doubt and resulted in acquittal. The defences included identification and the use to be made of surveillance video. This was a very difficult case. The defence was able to raise a reasonable doubt because it dissected the surveillance video to the point of demonstrating that there was another motor vehicle captured at the location that bore a direct match to the car operated by the accused. Defending a drug case can be an arduous task, requiring careful analysis by an experienced Calgary drug lawyer who understands the interplay between the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA), the Criminal Code of Canada and the common law.
