Supreme Court rules against Prince Albert lawyer

Peter Abrametz may have lost his appeal at the Supreme Court, but the experience has only reinforced his esteem for the most powerful judges in Canada.

“It was a privilege to be there,” the Prince Albert-based defence lawyer said. “They were very engaged and, needless to say, very bright people.”

Abrametz was in Ottawa to argue the case of Tasia Natewayes, who was convicted of aiding and abetting a break and enter. In 2012, she acted as the getaway driver for a group of men who entered a Prince Albert home in search of a fight.

While there, they stabbed Dakota Nayneecassum, the cousin of the man they were looking for.
