Our client was charged with first degree murder and the allegations involved the use of a firearm. With bail a near impossibility because of the firearm allegation, our team went to work on a bail plan for our client.
After careful consideration, we decided on a four surety plan with strict house arrest and GPS ankle monitoring. The proposed bail plan was so strong, in fact, the Crown Attorney’s Office consented to release.
As a result, our client had minimal time in pre-trial custody and was able to rejoin his family. Most importantly, our client was able to meaningfully participate in preparing his defence.
