R. v. C.G. 2021 Newmarket OCJ

Charges: Possession of a weapon, Possession of cannabis

Result: During initial pre-trial discussions, the Crown’s position was for the client to plead guilty to all charges with a recommendation of a jail sentence. After Counsel Thaxsheni Brodie filed a Charter Application to challenge the search of the client and his vehicle, the Crown changed their position to a plea to a Possession of Cannabis ticket (a non-criminal disposition).
