Jackson was charged with smuggling a loaded prohibited handgun into Canada from the United States. He faced a three-year mandatory jail sentence.
Jackson was trucking goods into Canada for the first-time. He was licensed to carry a concealed firearm in the United States. He foolishly brought the gun into Canada without reporting it to the Canada border agents. The gun was discovered and Jackson was held for bail. A conviction would have barred Jackson from trucking goods into Canada, threatening him with financial ruin.
We worked with Jackson’s family and an American lawyer to assemble evidence supporting his good character.
We succeeded in persuading a judge to impose an absolute discharge. Jackson is still able to bring goods into Canada.
