Expert:  Debra replied 8 years ago.
Please give me a few basic facts and most importantly, were they stayed by the Crown or by the Judge?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
the charges were stayed by the crown counsel i was originally charged with possesion of child pornograghy
Expert:  Debra replied 8 years ago.
This means that at this point in time the Crown is not going ahead.

It means that any time within the next year the Crown and decide to relay the charges but at least for now you are off the hook.

For the time being this will come up if a criminal record search is done.
