Bail Release Successfully Obtained: Multiple Counts of Robbery with an Imitation Firearm

A client facing serious charges stemming from allegations of taking part in a string of street robberies, and using an imitation firearm to do so, was granted release from custody after a contested bail hearing where the prosecution attempted to keep him in jail until trial. Tyler MacDonald persuaded the Justice of the Peace that the client could be safely released by presenting dependable sureties who vowed to provide bail supervision, and by exposing the weaknesses in the prosecution's case against the client (this is a significant consideration at a bail hearing because weaknesses in the Crown's case supports the argument that an accused person is factually innocent of the alleged crimes, and therefore does not pose a risk to public safety and should be released on bail). Being released on bail will allow the client to better participate in the preparation of his defence and increases his chances of success at trial.
