Andresz L. was charged with fraud involving the operation of a nursing home in Brampton. The case took over three years to get to trial. The delay was due to a combination of the Crown’s failure to make timely disclosure, the backlog in the courts, and the unavailability of key witnesses on two separate trial dates. As a result, we persuaded the court to throw out the case as a violation of the defendant’s right to a trial within a reasonable time under section 11 of the Charter of Rights.Back
