Our office was retained by J’s mother to defend him with respect to charges laid. J. was charged with distribution of Child Pornography as well as uttering threats. The family had never experienced Criminal Proceedings before and desperately sought guidance on the best manner to navigate things. The charges were undoubtedly serious and the prospect of a jail sentence always exist when dealing with offences of this sort. After reviewing the case, Mr. Wyman concluded a strong argument could be made that the search of the client’s phone was a violation of his Charter protected rights. The argument was a persuasive one and Mr. S. was able to avoid a criminal record with respect to these most serious charges.
