R. v. J.D.
Posted in Bail andMarch 21, 2016
(Medicine Hat/Brooks, P.C.J.) Accused successfully obtained judicial interim release in relation to manslaughter charge. Obtaining bail (or judicial interim release) in homicide cases can be difficult. The optics in every homicide investigation are heavily tilted in favour of the Crown because of the tragedy (no what the interpretation) that somebody is deceased. Though our criminal law usually does its level best to be dispassionate, the reality is that for many of us, the automatic response to a criminal death case is that somebody must pay. Taking a step back can be difficult; however, once this is done, it is not hard to imagine that sometimes tragedy happens -- for not only the deceased and his or her family, but for the accused as well. Homicide cases represent a large number of wrongful convictions. David Chow is a Calgary homicide lawyer who routinely obtains judicial interim release for clients charged with serious crimes, such as murder, attempted murder, criminal negligence and manslaughter. This case occurred in Brooks, Alberta. David Chow handles cases throughout the province. He is not only a Calgary lawyer, he is a Brooks criminal lawyer.
