R. vs. M.B. – Surrey Provincial Court
Charge: Application for firearms prohibition and forfeiture.
Issue: Whether Crown could establish that our client posed a risk to himself or others.
Result: Mid trial, Mr. Mines was able to obtain a successful resolution in which our client consented to an 18 month prohibition rather than the 5 years Crown had been seeking. Further, rather than having to forfeit the $15,000 worth of weapons that police seized, Crown agreed to allow our client to sell them to a suitable buyer.
