    Douglas’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    If the magistrate is not allowing you to present evidence, it is more than likely because it is inadmissible under the rules of evidence. If, by chance, it is being precluded because he does not like you, use the transcript as a basis for your appeal.

    I have to do 20 days.

    If a warrant was issued for missing probation violation administrative hearing - how quickly is a warrant taken out and served?

  • If I was arrested on a possession charge but then my court case was dismissed with nolle.

    Would I have any problems getting into Canada? I know people who have gone in with MIPs and other infractions.

    Douglas’s Answer

    The operative factor is that it was dismissed. That mean that you have no conviction. If you have any problems with Canada, it would not appear to be over this one charge.
