This matter was a case of mistaken identity. Our client was arrested in Edmonton after it was revealed that he had outstanding warrants in Calgary. Mr. D had no idea what the charges related to and as such retained our services. It was alleged that D. had been arrested in Calgary in relation to several possession of stolen property counts. The person arrested was in fact our client’s brother who had provided D’s name after committing the offence. When the brother never showed up for court, arrest warrants issued. Defence gave what’s known as alibi notice to Crown counsel. This notice detailed that the client was in fact in Edmonton at the time of the offence and offered corroborative evidence in the form of witness statements and telephone records to prove it. The Crown’s case folded quickly thereafter.
