Dominic Gravel (early 2005) He had spent almost a year in pre-trial custody for one of the biggest grow-op busts in Quebec. After half a dozen hearings where the courts kept insisting his S.601 "unknown to law" motion needed constitutional notice until a judge finally admitted he didn't, then the Crown offered him a plea bargain that let himout in just a few weeks or months. Pretty impressive to have such an arch-criminal released for so little more time. So, 16 people had their charges withdrawn and 3 had a plea bargain so the Crown could avoid arguing the POLCOA. And of course, since the Sfetkopoulos decision and the Crown Sean Gaudet's Goodie, POLCOA is even stronger.
