R. v. A.

January 2022


Ariel successfully appealed a Superior Court judge's decision to commit his client to trial on a charge of first degree murder, arguing that the preliminary inquiry judge was correct in finding that there was no evidence of first degree and committing Mr. A and his co-accused to trial on second degree murder. The Court of Appeal allowed the appeal and restored the committal on second degree murder.
