At the conclusion of the trial, the presiding judge was left with a reasonable doubt over what had transpired. All charges dismissed.

Drugs

After three days of trial, the client was ultimately acquitted of all the most serious charges. The court also found that the Charter rights of the client had been breached during the investigation.
