Arrested, Impaired driving Over 80mg
Generally when a person is charged with a drinking & driving offence this is the first time that they have ever dealt with the police or the courts and the whole process is quite frightening and confusing. Understandably they have a number of questions. Contact Chris Avery for a Free Consultation
A driver stopped by the police engages several potential Charter issues.
The motorist’s detention invokes s. 9 (arbitrary detention), s. 10(a) (right to be informed of the reason why) and s. 10(b) the right to counsel. Furthermore, the officer’s search for evidence is generally warrantless and raises s. 8 issues relating to unreasonable search and seizure.
The accused is also entitled to full disclosure (s. 7 fundamental justice) as well as the right to be tried within a reasonable time (s. 11B). Against this constitutional background these cases can be fought and won. Many cases also turn on common investigative lapses that a skilled counsel can exploit.
