R. v. D.

February 2021


Ariel’s client was charged with the first degree murder of a man shot several times in the head in an Islington apartment building. A person matching Ariel’s client’s physical description was seen on video with a firearm and a witness identified Ariel’s client as one of the shooters during an undercover police “Mr. Big” operation. The Court found the “Mr. Big” statements to be inadmissible hearsay and Ariel’s client was discharged at the preliminary inquiry.
