Waugh & Associates engaged in significant negotiations with the Crown, highlighting serious Charter issues with the file. These included issues with the client’s detention and arrest and with the subsequent police search. Ultimately, the Crown abandoned the file and Entered a Stay of Proceedings on all charges after the preliminary inquiry and before the matter was set for trial.

Outcome: Charges Dropped. No Criminal Record.
