13. Regina v. N.M.T. [Court of Queen’s Bench for Saskatchewan, Swift Current – June 2017]
The facts in this case are pretty much the same as those in Case #12 above. As a consequence of the nature and amount of drugs seized by the R.C.M.P. the Crown embarked upon two separate drug prosecutions – one for the cocaine in Queen ’s Bench (Case # 12) and the other for marijuana in the Provincial Court for Saskatchewan.
BOTTOM LINE: As a consequence of Patrick Fagan ’s successful Charter applications during the course of the Queen’s Bench cocaine prosecution (ie: the exclusion of evidence pursuant to Section 24(2) of the Charter) the Crown acknowledged the obvious and killed the corresponding cannabis marijuana prosecution by directing the Clerk of the Provincial Court to completely withdraw all charges.
Patrick C. Fagan is a highly accomplished lawyer with an impressive career spanning over 35 years in the legal field.
