Charges

Impaired Driving; Driving Over the Legal Limit, .142 BAC

Result

Charge reduced to Careless Driving, and the Client kept his driver's licence

Case Details

One snowy day in early 2010, Ivan M. lost control of his vehicle and it skidded off the road into a ditch.

A passing police officer stopped to assist. During this time, it was observed that the driver’s breath smelled of alcohol and there was other indications of impairment.

Ultimately he was arrested and charged with driving over the legal limit.

Early on in the case, Mr. Anber had discussed the case with the Crown prosecutor and they negotiated over certain aspects of the case.

After hiring a toxicologist who wrote a report showing that the client’s blood alcohol may have been below the legal limit, and after explaining that the client was a family man with many responsibilities that required him keeping his licence, Mr. Anber was able to convince the prosecutor to reduce the charge to a non-criminal traffic offence.
