Manasie Ipeelee v. Her Majesty the Queen (October 17, 2011)
Case #33650

Her Majesty the Queen v. Frank Ralph Ladue (October 17, 2011)
Case #34245

The main issue in these appeals concerns the sentencing of aboriginal offenders.

Manasie Ipeelee pleaded guilty to breaching his long-term supervision order to abstain from alcohol. He was arrested after he was riding a bicycle in an erratic manner down a major downtown street while he was intoxicated. Ipeelee was designated a long-term offender following his conviction for sexual assault causing bodily harm.

Frank Ladue was convicted of breaching his long-term supervision order after he was caught using cocaine and morphine at a halfway house in downtown Vancouver. The Crown is appealing his reduced sentence of one year from three years.
