At long last we have a common sense decision made by a Superior Court Justice whose ruling will serve as a guidance in all future hearings involving similar settings. People who make it easy for criminals to "go forth and do damage" are equally guilty of the crimes that ensue from their actions.
In a ground-breaking decision, a judge found Monday that a trio convicted of selling devices and software used to steal and reuse credit and debit card data were part of a criminal organization.
The law is usually used for Hells Angels and other gangs.
“This is the first time we are aware of a conviction under the criminal organization legislation for credit card offences,” Det.-Sgt. Mike Hudson of the Ottawa Police said. “It’s precedent setting.”
Justice Robert Smith ... Thank You, Your Honor
