  • R. v. Beaver., 2022 SCC 54 – According to the Supreme Court of Canada, the failure of an arresting officer to take detailed contemporaneous notes on the grounds of arrest and the material underlying them does not necessarily preclude a finding of reasonable and probable grounds.
  • R. v. Sharma, 2022 SCC 39 – The Supreme Court of Canada held Parliament may make conditional sentences unavailable for offences carrying maximum sentences of 14 years or life, after having found a maximum sentence to serve as a suitable proxy for the seriousness of the offence.
  • R. v. Ndhlovu, 2022 SCC 38 – Section 490.12 and subsection 490.13(2.1) were found to be overbroad, contrary to s. 7 of the Charter, in part by leading to the mandatory registration of offenders who do not pose an increased risk of committing a future sex offence.
  • R. v. J.J., 2022 SCC 28 – The Supreme Court of Canada upheld the constitutionality of the application process to obtain records in the accused’s possession under s. 278.92.
  • R. c. Bissonnette, 2022 SCC 23 – Section 745.51 infringed the s. 12 Charter guarantee against cruel and unusual punishment by effectively authorizing the imposition of a life sentence without realistic possibility of parole.
  • R. v. Brown, 2022 SCC 18 – The Supreme Court of Canada struck down an earlier version of s. 33.1, having held it to infringe unjustifiably ss. 7 and 11(d) of the Charter, due to the absence of foreseeability in that provision.
