17. Regina v. M.H. [Provincial Court of Alberta, Calgary – August, 2010]

Client (a bar manager) was charged with trafficking in cocaine as a consequence of ostensibly facilitating a deal between a cocaine trafficker (bar patron) and an undercover police officer. The prosecution was premised on the belief that our client was a party to the offence of drug trafficking by virtue of the assistance rendered. Through efforts undertaken by our office with the Federal Department of Justice we ultimately killed this prosecution in its entirety by the entry of a stay of proceedings.
