Our client was charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.
Police executed a search warrant at our client’s residence and seized a large amount of cocaine as well as cutting agents, scales, baggies and cash.
We filed a Charter application alleging breaches of our client’s rights to counsel, his right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure and his right to be free from arbitrary detention. After reviewing our Charter application, the Crown Attorney agreed to withdraw this charge.
Note: This is a case where the police obtained a search warrant
