M.A. was charged with human trafficking charges. We were able to get the charges dismissed at the preliminary hearing phase, due to the Crown failing to produce the complainant. The complainant continued to make representations that she would come to court, but then would not come. Our advocacy forced the Judge to dismiss the charges because of the sheer number of times the complainant was failing to appear, as well as “latches” and “negligence” on the part of the Crown in ensuring her appearance.
