15. Regina v. S.J. [Provincial Court of Alberta, Calgary – May 2012]

Client (an alleged member of a well-known motorcycle “club”) was charged with extortion and other offences relative to the attempted recovery of problematic “accounts receivable”. At preliminary inquiry we cross-examined the police at length relative to certain subtle but important “shortcomings” in their investigative account of events. Bottom line: All charges were completely withdrawn within weeks of the conclusion of the preliminary inquiry.
