Regina v. F.E. [Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta, September 2013]

Client was charged with possession of approximately 1 kilogram of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking and numerous firearm offences. She was released on bail, one condition of which was to have no contact with her co-accused. Over the course of two months the police allegedly intercepted over 500 conversations between F.E. and her co-accused – many of those conversations involved the alleged destruction of material evidence. Her bail was promptly denied at the Provincial Court level (where she was not represented by our office). F.E. then retained Ms. Fagan who secured F.E.’s release on bail in the Court of Queen’s Bench despite vehement opposition by the assigned Crown Prosecutor.
