R. v. A.J.A.
Posted in Impaired Driving andJuly 30, 2020
(Cochrane, P.C. - DUI). AJA was a person without a prior criminal record. He was also a hard working person, with respect for the law, the justice system and the police. After a couple of drinks AJA went bed only to be awoken some hours later by an urgent call from a family member who needed help pulling a vehicle out of a ditch. The roads were snow covered and icy. AJA got out of bed, feeling fine, thinking that he after some hours of sleep he was ok to help. He drove a short distance, helped his family member but on the way home drove through a Cochrane checkstop. AJA was polite and cooperative in the extreme and the investigating officer responded similarly. Unfortunately for AJA he blew slightly over the legal limit and thus was charged with DUI. AJA hired Cochrane DUI lawyer, David Chow, to help with his case. After some months and scheduling a trial date, the charges against AJA were stayed by the Crown. The Crown clearly had no reasonable prospect of conviction for impaired driving and the accused had viable defences to the at/over 80 charge. Charged with DUI in Cochrane, Banff, Canmore or in the Calgary area? Call David Chow; he is a Cochrane criminal lawyer who has been defending impaired driving cases since 1999.
