R. v. L.
Mr. L was on bail for dangerous charges in Barrie. While on bail, Mr. L was charged with breaching his probation and possession of stolen property. Ms. B facilitated Mr. L in turning himself into the police. He was very nervous about going back to jail. Ms. B organized a plan of release so that Mr. L would be prepared for a bail hearing the same day he turned himself in. Despite the fact that it was the defence onus to show cause why Mr. L should be released, Ms. B was able to secure a release for Mr. L. He was released to the same surety, which pleased Mr. L as the other option was to send him to a city an hour away with a new surety. This would have made things very difficult for Mr. L to get to work. Due to Ms. B’s efforts, Mr. L was able to surrender himself and go home the same day without having to spend a night in jail.
