R v P.R. [Canmore Provincial Court]
The client was charged with criminal charges of operating a motor vehicle while impaired and having a blood alcohol content over 80mg%. The client was also ticketed under s. 94(2) of the Traffic Safety Act for operating a motor vehicle while Tonii Roulston reviewed the file and set the matter for trial, arguing that the client's protected rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms had been violated by the arresting officer. Tonii Roulston entered vigorous negotiations with the Crown Prosecutor and all criminal charges were stayed by the Crown in advance of trial. Tonii Roulston also successfully negotiated a lower fine and resolved the traffic ticket to a different offence. This negotiation prevented the client from receiving a 6-month driving suspension.
