Just 24 hours after Brighton’s Scott Quick was released from custody, Quinte News talked with Quick’s lawyer Patrick Ducharme.
Monday morning in Windsor court, the Crown told the judge that there was not enough evidence to try Scott Quick in the death of 40 year old Nancy Quick (ex-wife), who was struck by a hit and run driver near Windsor in 2006.
She died of her injuries five days later in a Detroit hospital.
On Tuesday, Ducharme told us that Quick is relieved and happy to be out of jail. He added that Quick is not angry about the last two years.
In a CBC report Quick said his time behind bars was hell, however his attorney says he has not said anything about seeking legal retribution against the police or the crown.
Ducharme says he was proud of the prosecutors and how they told Nancy Quick’s family that there was not enough evidence for conviction. He said the fact that the investigation got past the preliminary stage was wrong.
We asked Ducharme about the crown’s decision not to move forward. He tells us there was no way that Quick could have stolen the van, because he was taking his son to the dentist. The timeline did not match up he says.
Ducharme says for now Quick will remain in the Windsor area.
