Our client was charged with Impaired Driving on Highway 400 North. This was his third Impaired Driving offence and he had two prior entries for Impaired Driving offences. My client would have lost his license for his lifetime (min. 10 years under the Highway Traffic Act).
We went for a trial and challenged the Crown case. We argued that our client’s right to counsel was breached and further that the breath samples were not taken according to the required law. At the trial we cross examined the arresting officer and were able to bring evidence that our client’s rights were breached. We were successful in our arguments and the charges were withdrawn.
