Regina v. C.J. [Calgary Provincial Court, February 2012]

“The Tainted Ecstasy Case” – Client charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking (ecstasy); ten counts of trafficking (ecstasy) and several proceeds of crime and weapons charges. The ecstasy seized was tested and determined to have been cut with the lethal compound “PMMA” that had been linked to ten deaths in the city of Calgary. As a result, this file received extensive coverage in the media and was “front page news”. The Crown vehemently opposed the release of C.J. and his co-accused. Ms. Fagan was able to secure C.J.’s judicial interim release (i.e. bail) within 48 hours of his arrest.
