Adam Leon Awaits Fate

It's a case one city lawyer calls double jeopardy. A former Confederation College aviation student is hoping a Thunder Bay judge will agree that he's already paid his dues. Adam Leon is charged with theft in connection with an incident in April of 2009 that caused an international sensation after a Cessna was taken from the college flight school and flown into the United States. In court this morning his lawyer Neil McCartney argued that Leon has already been punished in the U.S. with jail time and that should count in Canada. The judge in the cause will be handing down a ruling on December 5th.
