Posession of a Controlled Substance Charges Dropped

Posted in Criminal Cases (Non-Driving), Drug Charges

My client was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance stemming from a police search of his vehicle.  He had intentions of going to medical school in the United States and could not face the prospect of a conviction for a drug offence.  At first he tried to handle the matter without hiring a lawyer, and the Crown’s position was tough — they wanted to proceed on the charge and would not consider any sort of diversion program.  After T. came to see me, I reviewed the disclosure and had a meeting with the Crown to negotiate my client’s position.  Within a month, the charged were dropped, and medical school is still in the cards.
