    Smyth calls Rafferty a psychopath, "pure evil" and a "sick puppy," at one point bringing McClintic herself into the room and challenging Rafferty to call her a liar to her face. McClintic had just confessed to the crime and implicated Rafferty.
    Rafferty does not look at her, but says she is a liar.

    From the article you linked:

    When police legally searched Rafferty's car and found the two devices, they should have obtained another search warrant to examine their contents, Heeney ruled — even though at the time there was no binding authority upon them to do so.
    The first court decision to spell out that a secondary search warrant is necessary under such circumstances wasn't released until several weeks after investigators began poring through Rafferty's laptop.

    Based on this, article, I would say the judge erred in his decision.

    Can the Crown appeal the verdict, based on this? ETA: If the verdict isn't 'guilty on all counts.'

    Inal, but I would think that they would retry the case and try to get that evidence in again

    (I do not think they can appeal a verdict)

    I was wondering the opposite...As sick as the omission makes me feel, IF the Judge HAD allowed it, now that the laws have changed...would it have permitted the Defense to declare a mistrial??

    Thanks, I hadn't heard of this movie before. Even more disturbing considering the context I am finding out about it. I would have watched this type of movie, but now....not sure.
