R. v. J.M. 2020 Hamilton OCJ

Charges: Sex trafficking under 18, sexual assault under 18, forcible confinement, etc.

Result: Client was out on bail for firearms offences when he was arrested for the sex trafficking, rape and assault of a minor. Despite the seriousness of the allegations and the judge finding there was a substantial likelihood of him re-offending, Counsel Paula Seymour convinced the judge that her client can be released on bail under conditions that still allowed him to travel for work. All charges were subsequently stayed following a judicial pretrial and the first day of a preliminary hearing.
