THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~~ July 4, 2020 (LSN) Appearing by video, Friday, July 3, 2020 in Thunder Bay Bail Court is 17 years old D.R. Her Worship, Justice of the Peace Anna Gibbon is presiding.
The youth was arrested by Thunder Bay Police and criminally charged with:
The Provincial Crown is willing to consent to the release of this youth, but no responsible adult is here in Thunder Bay for him. The court hears from Duty Counsel that his mother in Toronto will purchase a plane ticket, but the youth has no hard copy identification on him. Only a picture of his Ontario Health card on his phone.
Justice of the Peace Anna Gibbon asks the TBPS Officer “How did you identify him?”
The officer responds “I’m not the arresting Officer, I don’t know”
Her Worship asks him to find out.
The Officer checks with the Watch Commander and informs the court that 17 year old D.R. was identified by his Toronto Police mugshot.
THE PLAN ON RELEASING THE YOUTH.
The plan presented by Duty Counsel Justin McConnell is to have the youth go live with his grandmother in Toronto.
Inside Edition did a quick Google search of the address and it’s an 18 storey apartment building. It’s in a known gang infested neighborhood on Jane Street
NO APARTMENT NUMBER WAS GIVEN TO THE COURT.
No real conditions requested other than reside clause and return for court.
JUSTICE REQUEST OF THUNDER BAY POLICE
Justice of the Peace Anna Gibbon requests that Thunder Bay Police write a letter for this youth stating they’ve verified his identity so the teen can get through security at the Thunder Bay Airport.
She also wants Thunder Bay Police to drive D.R. to the airport and thinks it would be great if they watched him get on a plane.
(It seems Her Worship Gibbon thinks Thunder Bay Police are running a babysitting service)
FIVE DAYS TO RETURN HOME
Her Worship Gibbon allows the teenager until July 8 at 9pm to get to this Toronto apartment building on Jane Street....the one with no apartment number.
Justice to hear Synopsis of Allegations
When releasing any accused person by the court, the presiding Justice of the Peace is required to hear a synopsis of the allegations to ensure that the conditions being imposed are suitable.
But that didn’t happen today.
Justice of the Peace Anna Gibbon was in such a rush to release this Toronto teen gangster that she didn’t bother to ask the Crown.
The teen was ordered released with a return court date in September.
Its is being asked if Anna Gibbon even knows what the requirements of her job are? She never went to law school. Her previous work experience was an Aboriginal Liason for City of Thunder Bay as well as Corrections Officer.
She might need to get some more JPtraining.
Thunder Bay Police Officers are too busy and short staffed to be dealing with her strange requests.
