R. v. A.R.
Posted in Impaired Driving andMarch 14, 2013
(Calgary, P.C.). 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. AR's case is a situation where the accused was able to benefit from the loss of statutory presumptions due to frailties in the police investigation.
