(Criminal law / Conditional sentence / Breach of condition)
The Crown applied to have M. serve the unexpired part of her conditional sentence in custody, after she was allegedly found in breach of her sentence conditions in a motor vehicle accident.  The Crown's application did not, however, include any signed statements of witnesses who had knowledge of the material facts as required by law.  The Court dismissed the Crown's application, finding that a signed witness statement was necessary to assure a minimum level of reliability.
