R v. Pilling (Unreported)

Tam Boyar and Samantha Arrandale represented the accused, Derek Pilling, on charges of trafficking in a controlled substance, transporting proceeds of crime and possession of proceeds of crime. Mr. Pilling entered a guilty plea to all charges and the Crown sought a sentence of three years jail to be served in Nova Scotia (where the trafficking activity was alleged to have occurred). Following a contested sentencing hearing in Nova Scotia, the court suspended the passing of sentence and placed Mr. Pilling on a probation order.
