Crown: M. Rumble, Assistant Crown Attorney, Newmarket
Defence: Craig Penney, Toronto Criminal Lawyer
¶ 1 MR PENNEY: My friend will see an endorsement with respect to the sexual assault.
¶ 2 CROWN: Yes. I'm asking that the sexual assault count be marked "withdrawn" for no reasonable prospect of conviction.
¶ 3 THE COURT: That count will be marked withdrawn at the request of the Crown.
¶ 4 MR PENNEY: Thank you, so much. Your Honour...
¶ 5 THE COURT: Counsel's name again — I'm sorry, I didn't catch it.
¶ 6 MR PENNEY: Penney, P-E-N-N-E-Y, initial "C."
¶ 7 THE COURT: Thank you. Go ahead.
¶ 8 MR PENNEY: We are going to be setting a trial date on this, Your Honour, today, and we're also going to be varying the bail. The surety is here. The endorsement is on the brief. I'm content to do it all up in 201, or attempt to do the bail variation here. I'm in Your Honour's hands. I know they're not too busy in 201 — I checked with the clerk before I came down here.
¶ 9 THE COURT: We are going to traverse it to 201, as long as, there is clear instructions on the Crown brief.
¶ 10 CROWN: Yes.
