(Calgary, P.C.). Searching for a Calgary drug lawyer? There are a number of qualified Calgary criminal lawyers who can help with your drug charge. Thank you for perusing this website and giving David Chow a chance to earn your business. In this case, the client was charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking. A plea of "not guilty" was entered and the case was set for trial. NM's Calgary drug lawyer file a substantial Charter Notice, asserting that all of the evidence obtained as. result of an unlawful search and seizure should be excluded from the trial. As a result of the filed Charter Notice, the Crown withdrew all of the charges. NM not only avoided a criminal record, but also ducked a three-year starting point jail sentence. Trafficking or possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine is considered to be a very serious offence for which denunciation and deterrence are the primary sentencing objectives. The Alberta Court of Appeal established the starting point jail penalty and as such, if you have been charged with trafficking, possession for the purpose of trafficking or any cocaine related offence, there is much wisdom in hiring the right Calgary drug lawyer. David Chow has been a criminal lawyer in Alberta since 2003 and has been defending criminal law cases since 1999. He offers a free telephone consultation.
