13. Regina v. K.P. [Provincial Court of Alberta, Airdrie – May, 2012]
Client and others charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and weapons offences as a consequence of the search of our client’s motor vehicle by the police. We rejected an offer of nine months’ imprisonment in exchange for a timely guilty plea to trafficking and provided the Crown with detailed notice of our intention to challenge the constitutionality of the search. Bottom Line: The matter was resolved by way of Alternative Measures and as long as K.P. performs a specific number of community service hours all charges will be completely withdrawn.
