Firearm Offences

Firearm Offences

Take a moment to review some of Céline’s successes.

R. v. D.V.

D.V. was fascinated with guns. When he lost his job, an acquaintance offered to buy him a restricted firearm if he registered another one under his name. D.V. agreed and bought and registered two restricted firearms. When he received the guns, he invited a friend over. Both men drank alcohol and consumed drugs while target shooting. D.V.’s friend killed himself. D.V. hid the gun and told police that his friend committed suicide with a shotgun. The Crown was seeking 6-8 years in jail, but Celine successfully argued for a 5-year jail sentence, even considering that D.V. had tampered with a death scene, lied to police and trafficked a restricted weapon.
