Stouffville Animal Abuse Case Moving Forward

Calvin Barry, who is representing Vicky and Jason Small spoke with Yorkregion.com regarding the case moving forward.

Mr. Barry stated that five days have been set aside in August, should the case go to trial, but he anticipates the process will take up to two weeks.

“A guilty conviction could bring a maximum $60,000 fine, prohibition for life from owning livestock and up to two years in jail”, he said.

Barry said the challenge will be to put together an agreed statement of facts because “they all have different levels of culpability and complicity and aiding and abetting. …

“Obviously if there’s a guilty plea and the state is able to save all the resources of bringing in Crown experts and defence experts and witnesses and tying up the courts for a number of weeks, then the defendants under the case law could be given some credit for that to show the remorse and the closure and the finality of the proceedings.”
