R v S.W. and W.R.

Pincher Creek Provincial Court

Counsel: Tonii Roulston
Offence: Unauthorized Possession of Firearm and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime (x2).
Result: Charges Withdrawn

The clients were co-accused on the same matter. Both clients were charged with unauthorized possession of a firearm and two counts each of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.00. Both clients faced a jail sentence upon conviction. Tonii Roulston reviewed the file and set the matter for trial, arguing that the client’s protected rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms had been violated by the arresting officers. Tonii Roulston entered negotiations with the Crown Prosecutor in defence of the clients and convinced the Crown to withdraw all charges.
