R. v. S.N. Cocaine Trafficking
Mr. N. was found guilty of trafficking cocaine at a trial. While Mr. N. was waiting to be sentenced to 3 years in jail, Maurice was able to convince the trial judge that convicted him that she made an error and she should reverse her decision. This very rare and unique legal argument (functus officio) was successful. Mr. N. was acquitted and the $35,000 in cash seized by police was returned to him.
