(Sentencing / consideration of other offences / new charges)
The accused plead guilty to an offence. While awaiting sentencing, the accused allegedly committed further offences, and additional charges were laid. Evidence of the new charges was not adduced at the sentencing hearing because the Crown did not know about them. The Crown then sought to introduce evidence of the additional charges on appeal. The Court held that evidence of new charges can be considered during sentencing if the requirements of s. 725 of the Criminal Code are met, but that in this case the evidence not admissible because the Crown did not act with due diligence.
Majority/Concurring: 5/2
