Prosecuting Attorney with the Crown’s office in Toronto
Former Prosecutor with the Crown Attorney
In 1993 Ms. Currie previously worked as a Prosecuting Attorney with the Crown’s office in Toronto where she prosecuted a wide variety of criminal cases.
In 1994/1995 Ms. Currie was co-counsel for the Canadian Red Cross in the Krevor Royal Commission into the safety of the Blood System following the aids crisis. The Red Cross was subject to scrutiny and criticism with respect to its role in the distribution and collection of tainted blood. The senior individuals involved faced serious criminal charges laid against the decision makers at the Red Cross and others. These charges were eventually dropped.
In 1996 Ms. Currie was selected and appointed by former Court of Appeal Justice Fred Kaufman to be his Associate Commission Counsel into the Royal Commission of the Wrongful Conviction of Guy Paul Morin who had been charged and convicted of the murder of Christine Jessop. The work in these proceedings involved a detailed analysis of the criminal justice system culminating in a report that has had far reaching impact on issues, practices and proceedings governing criminal law.
Thereafter, Ms. Currie has been actively engaged in the practice of criminal defense defending a wide range of adult and youth charges. While a successful criminal defense involves careful preparation and research, many cases can often be quickly resolved by negotiation, behind the scenes, to address criminal charges as simply and inexpensively as possible. But when it is necessary to take a case through to trial she will not hesitate to vigorously defend your interests. Her commitment is to provide quality and cost effective legal representation.
