Crown: J. MacDonald, Assistant Crown Attorney, Toronto
Defence: Craig Penney, Criminal Arrest Warrant Lawyer, Toronto
¶ 1 CROWN: I have the add-on for Q.T. Craig Penney, counsel for Q.T. is here. This is a bench warrant rescission from — it's been rescinded. The warrant was from 2004.
¶ 2 MR PENNEY: Good afternoon, Your Worship. I didn't quite hear everything Ms MacDonald had to say so I'll respond to any questions Your Worship has, but the plan is to rescind the bench warrant issued on the 11th of August, 2004, and then we're going to withdraw the charge. I can confirm that I made a donation in the amount of $500 to the community resources connections of Toronto downstairs today and provided a trust cheque to [the correct person] drawn on my account.
¶ 3 THE COURT: So, bench warrant will be rescinded.
¶ 4 CROWN: And the Crown is asking that the charge be marked withdrawn because of the charitable donation and Mr. Penney, himself, brought this matter forward two days ago to clear this matter up.
¶ 5 THE COURT: All right, so the charge is withdrawn at the request of the Crown.
¶ 6 CROWN: Yes.
¶ 7 MR PENNEY: And I would, please, ask the Clerk to ensure that whatever paperwork is required gets out to the police bureau because it is a six-year-old warrant and they've told me they will need to see something so they can make the appropriate entries in the computer.
¶ 8 CROWN: And the Court officer here now has a copy of the Information and we're just going to let the Court officer know it's 14 Division.
¶ 9 THE COURT: Thank you.
