R. v. N.R. [Arrest Processing Unit, Calgary, September 2015]

N.R. had been previously arrested on three separate drug matters involving (among other things) substantial amounts of crack cocaine. He was detained for several months and eventually a Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench released him on extremely strict bail conditions which included 24/7 house arrest with no exceptions. When released N.R. was cautioned that if he violated his bail conditions even in the slightest degree that he would remain in jail until trial. Within months of his release N.R. was arrested by police several blocks from his home. Ms. Fagan successfully secured his release within 24 hours of his arrest.
