$23-Million Is Now "Small Potatoes"?
Apparently, defrauding 70-people out of 23-million dollars is no longer worth prosecuting in Toronto. A Crown Attorney told one of the victims that there aren't sufficient resources to prosecute the case.
"... an email from Crown attorney Christine McGoey obtained by CBC News, the Crown said one of the reasons it decided not to pursue the case was because of the competition over trial time.
"There are very serious criminal matters competing for limited trial time, with cases being stayed because of delay," wrote McGoey. "And we have to consider the impact of any delay that might occur throughout the process and the variety of factors that are taken into account in assessing which cases will go to trial before others."
