3. Regina v. G.B. [Provincial Court of Alberta, Lethbridge – February 2010]

Client charged with half a dozen separate counts of trafficking in cocaine (repeated sales to the same undercover officer) and possession of approximately one kilogram of cocaine as a consequence of the seizure of that substance from client’s motor vehicle. Matter was ultimately resolved by way of a guilty plea to one count of trafficking in cocaine and all other charges (including the charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking relative to the kilogram of cocaine) were completely withdrawn. In spite of strong opposition by the Crown prosecutor (and the police) our client was granted a conditional sentence order (“house arrest”) thereby keeping his family, employment and life intact.
