Robb has defended numerous individuals who have been targeted by the Toronto Police Service’s Gun and Gang Task Force. Most recently, Robb defended an Accused involved in Project Fusion.
In 2010, Robb represented an Accused who was arrested as one of numerous suspects in a police round up known as “Project Fusion” – A multi-jurisdictional operation – led by the Toronto Police Service’s Gun and Gang Task Force. One-hundred and twenty five people were arrested in what police described as “an operation believed to be the largest of its kind in Ontario. Project Fusion involved over 1,000 officers from across the province. It began in mid-2008 and focused on a series of violent crimes dating back to 2003. It is alleged that those involved are leaders, members and/or associates who participate in two criminal organizations that operate in concert with each other, known as the “MNE” (Markham Road/Eglinton Avenue East), and the “400 Crew” (400/McCowan Road). A total of 100 homes and 61 vehicles were the targets of the search warrants across Toronto, as well as in York, Peel and Durham.
Robb’s client “A.L.” was arrested on charges relating to weapons, robbery, and drugs. Part way through Mr. A.L.’s preliminary inquiry, Robb challenged the Crown Attorney on the basis that there was not enough evidence to commit Mr. A.L. to trial. Before the preliminary inquiry was over, Robb negotiated to have all the charges against A.L. withdrawn. Many of A.L.’s co-accuseds in Project Fusion are still facing charges before the courts.
