Summary

Jevans testified against Matthew Phan, a drug dealer convicted for trafficking in drugs and weapons on the dark web.Phan’s 2018 arrest and the subsequent seizure of his Bitcoin wallet was a first for Canada, and Jevans’ certification as an expert witness is a first for the Canadian court system.The Canadian government appreciated Dave Jevans’ help | Source: Business WireOne of the lawyers for the prosecution said:“I would have loved to have access to a tool such as CipherTrace when I originally conducted this investigation in May of 2015. The Land Rover case, in which police claimed a $42,000 vehicle in relation to $225 worth of drug sales, marked the first time the government enforced the constitutional protection against “excessive fines.” The ruling doesn’t change the risk to property much, but it enables people to argue that they were excessively fined, as lawyer Wesley Hottot told the New York Times:“The new thing is that they can now say at the end of it all, whether I’m guilty or not, I can argue that it was excessive.”Phan lost his appeal to retain around half of his cryptos.
