Counsel: Robin McIntyre
Offence: Possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
Result: Plead guilty to one count of simple possession.
The client was charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. The matter was set for a five-day trial in the Court of Queen’s Bench, until after Robin discussed triable issues with the Crown. The client chose to re-elect to Provincial Court and plead to one count of simple possession, and ultimately avoided a lengthy jail sentence.
