Jury selection to begin in plot to kill Canadian mobster

Jury selection is scheduled to begin in less than three weeks in the case where Maurice (Mom) Boucher is charged with plotting to kill organized crime figure Raynald Desjardins.
Superior Court Justice Éric Downs and the lawyers involved in the case will begin the process on April 23. The trial will be heard at the Gouin courthouse in northern Montreal. Boucher, 64, will be represented by defence lawyer Mathieu Poissant and the Crown will be represented by prosecutors Matthew Ferguson and Marie-Christine Godbout.
Boucher was present for a pretrial hearing held at the Gouin courthouse on Friday. He faces one count of conspiring to murder Desjardins, a well-known organized crime figure, between July 2015 and Nov. 9, 2015. Desjardins, 64, was behind bars at the time. Boucher was arrested on Nov. 19, 2015 as part of an investigation led by the Sûreté du Québec.
Details on what was said during the hearing on Friday cannot be published due to a standard publication ban ordered because the trial date is approaching.
