Criminal Law Cases of David G. Chow
R. v. A.R.
Posted in Impaired Driving andMarch 14, 2013
Client charged with operating a motor vehicle with blood-alcohol exceeding the legal limit. After a lengthy trial and argument as to whether "as soon as practicable" issues were Charter issues or statutory preconditions the accused was acquitted. The Defence argued that a Charter argument was not necessary and that the Crown lost the benefits of the presumptions within the Criminal Code due to unexplained delay in the acquisition of breath samples.
