R. v. N.D.
Posted in Judicial Interim Release / Bail, Drug Offences, Fireams Offences andAugust 13, 2010
(Calgary, P.C.). Judicial interim release or bail is one of the most important pieces of any successful criminal defence. When a client has bail, they tend to make more erudite decisions with respect to their criminal defence. Any experienced criminal defence lawyer in Calgary or elsewhere understands that a person is far more likely to plead guilty if they are lingering in jail waiting for their case to proceed to trial.In most cases, there is a presumption in favour of judicial interim release. In most instances, the Crown has the burden of demonstrating demonstrating that the accused is a flight risk (primary grounds), a re-offending and public safety risk (secondary ground) or that the accused's release would jeopardize public confidence in the justice system (tertiary ground). There are circumstances where the onus reverses and the accused must demonstrate that he or she is a candidate for release. Judicial interim release is so important to the defence that if you or a loved one need bail, there is wisdom in retaining an experienced Calgary bail lawyer. In the case of ND, the client was charged with various firearms and drug offences. With the help of Calgary criminal lawyer and bail lawyer David Chow, he successfully obtained judicial interim release and went on to successfully defend the firearms offences at trial.
