21. Regina v. M.J.N. [Provincial Court of Alberta, Calgary – September 2012]
Client was associated with a target of the Calgary Police Service who had allegedly sold cocaine to an undercover peace officer on a number of occasions. As a consequence of that association the police obtained a warrant to search residential premises occupied by our client. M.J.N. was charged with 4 counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking (cocaine/marijuana/cannabis resin/ecstasy) weapons and proceeds. A Crown offer of 30 months imprisonment in exchange for a prompt guilty plea to all drug offences was promptly rejected. At preliminary inquiry the matter was dealt with by way of a guilty plea to simple possession of cannabis marijuana and a $1,500.00 fine. All other charges were completely withdrawn.
