R. vs. J.P. – New Westminster Supreme Court

Charges: Production; Posession for the Purpose of trafficking (Marijuana).
Issue: Whether the Crown could prove that Mr. Mines’ client was the principle operator of the 1000 plant grow operation.
Result: After persuading Crown that his client was merely an enabler, and not the main individual resposnsible for the grow operation, the court accepted a joint submission for a conditional sentence. No jail.
