Not Guilty Verdict for Carjacking with a Firearm — R. v. D. M.

D.M. was charged with an attempted carjacking with a firearm.  It was alleged that D.M. and his friend set upon a couple who were simply talking in their car in the early morning hours.  The occupants of the car drove away when the assailants tried to attack the car. Shortly after the robbery attempt, D.M. was seen by the complainant.  He grabbed him and held him for the police. After a trial with a jury, Criminal Defence Attorney Misha Feldmann convinced the jury that it was a case of mistaken identity. D. M. was acquitted, while his co-accused, who was represented by other counsel, was found guilty and sentenced to jail.
