(Calgary, P.C. - Terrorism). On September 30th, 2020 a Calgary provincial court judge heard a contested judicial interim release hearing in relation to a Calgary terrorism suspect. The accused's Calgary criminal lawyer, David Chow, argued that the defence "showed cause" that release was appropriate. The accused was ordered released on October 5th, 2020 on conditions to include ankle bracelet monitoring. Ankle bracelet monitoring is becoming a powerful factor in favour of person's accused of crime in obtaining bail. In 2020 several accused have been release on ankle bracelet monitoring conditions in relation to offences that historically had a high probability of resulting in detention. In 2020, offences include homicide and terrorism. The use of ankle bracelet monitoring technology has arguably brought Alberta into the 21st Century. Where bail is often monitored by human energy, technology has the capability of significantly reducing the impact on human monitors. The technology includes more than the ability to merely GPS track the ankle bracelet wearer; it has the power to communicate with the wearer and even to detect when the wearer might be in places prohibited by a bail order. Some Calgary criminal lawyers have availed their clients with the ankle bracelet option to obtain judicial interim release. Ankle bracelets an effective tool for meeting concerns under the primary, secondary and tertiary grounds for bail, but are also potentially useful in mitigating the impact on historically strict conditions, such as house arrest or curfew. David Chow is a Calgary bail lawyer and full service Alberta criminal lawyer who has obtained judicial interim release for clients charged with serious offences, including murder, manslaughter and terrorism.
