JUDGE DROPS COCAINE TRAFFICKING CHARGES AGAINST ALLEGED DEALER AFTER LACK OF APPREHENSION FROM OPS
10/12/2017 4:46:27 PM


A judge has dropped cocaine trafficking charges against an alleged dealer.


Ontario Court Justice Richard Schwarzl ruled in favour of Mark Nurse's application arguing his right to a trial wasn't within the reasonable 18 month time frame.


Nurse was arrested nearly a year after a warrant was issued by Orangeville Police Service (OPS).


During that time, Nurse was in Niagara Regional Police custody and had pleaded guilty to drug trafficking in St. Catharines.


Nurse's trial was scheduled to start in May 2017, 22 and a half months after OPS issued an arrest warrant.


Schwarzl says had police made basic efforts, they would have readily found the applicant in custody and could have executed the arrest warrant literally any time.


For that reason, Schwarzl found that Nurse's onus in establishing that his right to be tried within a reasonable time was breached.
