Crown: Mr. Devlin, Assistant Crown Attorney, Toronto
Defence: Craig Penney, Criminal Defence Lawyer, Toronto
¶ 1 CROWN: The next matter on the counsel list is S.B., lines 26 to 28 on page 2.
¶ 2 MR PENNEY: Ms S.B. is coming forward, I see the brief just to my friend's right there. This is a matter where Ms S.B. has completed Diversion on the simple-possession charge.
¶ 3 CROWN: Just a moment's indulgence. Can the Court tell me if the Information reflects Ms S.B. is charged only with the simple possession?
¶ 4 MR PENNEY: No, she is charged with trafficking, possession for the purpose, and simple possession. I had a pre-trial with Ms Hayes on Monday. She indicated that she would divert the simple possession. The other two would be withdrawn upon completion of the Diversion.
¶ 5 CLERK: The simple possession of marijuana is count 3.
¶ 6 CROWN: Yes, that's correct. Ms S.B. has completed Diversion, and pursuant to the agreement Ms Hayes has with my friend, I would ask that the charges against this young lady be withdrawn.
¶ 7 THE COURT: All three counts?
¶ 8 CROWN: Yes, please.
¶ 9 THE COURT: All right.
¶ 10 MR PENNEY: Thank you, Your Worship. I thank you my friend.
