R v D.G.
The client was charged with impaired driving contrary to s 253(1)(A) and 253(1)(B), and s 51(a) of the Traffic Safety Act. Defence counsel made written argument prior to trial alleging that the police breached the client’s Charter rights by unlawfully arresting the client. Defence counsel negotiated with the Crown prosecutor to resolve the matter without the client receiving a criminal record.
Successful result: Criminal Code Charges were withdrawn at trial. The Client entered a plea of guilty to driving without a licence. He received a small fine and did not receive a criminal record.
