R. v. S.K. [Alberta Provincial Court, Lethbridge, December 2017]
The police alleged that S.K. was crossing the border from the USA to Canada in a transport truck containing drugs. S.K. told Canada Border Service Agents (CBSA) that he was transporting fruit from California to Costco in Alberta. CBSA searched the truck and located 17 kilograms (over 37 pounds) of what they believed to be cocaine. S.K. was arrested and charged with importation of cocaine and possession of cocaine, both of which carry up to a life sentence. S.K. retained Ms. Fagan to secure his release from custody.
BOTTOM LINE: Ms. Fagan put together a compelling bail plan and secured the release of her client within days of his release.
