R. v. G.
Ms. G was involved in the adult entertainment industry and was charged with serious offences involving human trafficking, forcible confinement and living off the avails etc. She had no family support and no friends who were able to help her with bail. Despite this, Ms. G wanted to turn herself in to the police and prayed that she would get bail.
Ms. Bristow assisted Ms. G in surrendering herself in order to have her bail hearing the same day. Ms. Bristow spoke with two proposed sureties, both of whom had only known Ms. G a few months. Ordinarily, someone who has not known an accused for very long would not make a good surety. However, Ms. Bristow spent time preparing the sureties and developing a plan of supervision that would address the court’s concerns. She also prepared Ms. G, advising her of what she could do prior to her surrender to put her in the best possible position for release.
The preparation by all parties paid off as Ms. Bristow proposed a form of release that satisfied the Crown Attorney who ultimately consented to her release. As a result, Ms. G was able to go home the same evening she turned herself in.
