21. Regina v. D.S. [Calgary Provincial Court, September 2008]
Client charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and proceeds of crime as a consequence of police search of a motor vehicle resulting in the seizure of approximately 200 grams of marijuana. The police stopped and searched the vehicle on the mistaken belief that it was being driven by our client’s son whom the police believed to be a “known drug trafficker”. Through negotiation the Crown conceded the problematic nature of the search from a constitutional perspective and all charges were ultimately withdrawn.
