R v A.A.

Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench

Counsel: Andrea Urquhart
Offence: First Degree Murder
Result: Ordered released on the charge of first degree murder

The young person was charged with first degree murder. The Crown argued that the young person should remain in custody pending the conclusion of her trial given the seriousness of the offence and concerns about her being released into the community. Lengthy submissions were before Justice Millar who ultimately agreed with Andrea that her client could be released in the community.
