2. Regina v. D.S. [Provincial Court of Alberta, Calgary – January 2011]

While conducting surveillance in a local drinking establishment the police observed our client socializing with persons believed to be members of a well-known motorcycle “club”. Consequently, the police came up with a bogus excuse to apprehend, identify and search our client. As a consequence of that search the police located a quantity of cocaine and our client was charged accordingly. A plea of not guilty was entered and a trial date scheduled. Nine months later the Crown concedes the abundantly obvious (i.e.: that this prosecution was premised on an illegal/ unconstitutional search and seizure) and killed/ terminated this prosecution by way of a Stay of Proceedings is a legal term used to refer to a direction by a Crown prosecutor or a Judge to the Clerk of the Court to terminate a criminal prosecution.
