The Crown will not appeal Edmonton MP Peter Goldring's not guilty verdict handed down in court Thursday.

Speaking on Friday, Crown prosecutor Laura Marr told CBC News that the decision was made after reviewing Judge Larry Anderson's decision.

She said that the crown has chosen not to appeal based upon the findings of fact. Goldring was found not guilty of failing to provide a breath sample after he was pulled over at a checkstop in December 2011.

Shortly after the verdict was announced, the MP was welcomed back into the Conservative caucus by Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

However, Goldring has not yet confirmed his future plans and has hinted he may enter the campaign to be Edmonton’s next mayor.
