Drug Charge Withdrawn

  • 8 April 2015
Charge(s):

CDSA: s.4(1) – Possession of a Controlled Substance (Marijuana)

Allegations:

My client was visiting an inmate at the Drumheller Penitentiary. When passing through their scanning instruments, he was found to have had recent contact with certain drugs, including opiates and morphine. A service dog was dispatched and demonstrated interest in his pockets, so my client was searched. A subsequent search of his vehicle in the parking lot revealed a couple of grams of marijuana.

Result:

I negotiated with the federal Crown the withdrawal of this charge on the basis of the search of his vehicle being highly suspect. No criminal conviction.
