R. v. P.H. Provincial Court of Alberta (Lethbridge)
P.H. was charged with impaired operation of her motor vehicle and refusing to provide a breath sample. Upon review of the disclosure it became clear that P.H.’s rights to be free from unlawful search and seizure and arbitrary detention were infringed based on the conduct of the investigating officers. Further Ms. Urquhart argued that P.H.’s right to speak to counsel before providing a breath sample was infringed.
Result: After reviewing Ms. Urquhart’s legal brief Crown counsel withdrew the charges.
