R. v. B.A.
Posted in Drug Offences, Fireams Offences andJune 21, 2019
(Calgary, Q.B.). BA was professionally and strongly prosecuted for possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine and unlawful possession of a loaded, restricted firearm. In this case, police investigated the accused and another person during a 60 day surveillance operation that culminated in the execution search warrants in a private dwelling house and a vehicle. BA was found "not guilty" of all charges. The Defence argued that the "identification" by police was frail, that the circumstantial evidence that BA was in "possession" of the gun and drugs was not proven and that the case failed to rise to the standard of proof, "beyond a reasonable doubt". In the final result, the trial judge agreed that the evidence in relation to ID and possession was insufficient to prove that BA had knowledge, consent and control over items located in a secret compartment located in motor vehicle. If you have been charged with a drug or firearms offence, you are looking at serious jail time. A criminal prosecution is serious business; so if you have been charged, look for a serious Calgary drug lawyer. Give David Chow a chance to earn your business.
