Young Man Acquitted of Firearm Charges
A client accused of carrying a loaded gun in his waistband by officers in the Toronto Police Services Guns and Gangs Unit was acquitted today of all firearm charges.
Derstine Penman lawyer Stephanie DiGiuseppe was successful in demonstrating key weaknesses in the Crown’s case, which led Justice Corrick of the Superior Court of Justice to conclude that the evidence given by the officers was “entirely irreconcilable” and could not be used to ground a conviction against the young man. In the end, Her Honour was not convinced that the officers actually located a firearm in the individual’s waistband, as they claimed, and found him not guilty of all firearm charges.
