R. v. M.K.
Posted in Impaired Driving, Criminal Driving Offences andFebruary 1, 2014
(Lethbridge, P.C.). The client was charged with serious impaired driving and dangerous driving offences. The case involved a major motor vehicle accident. David negotiated the withdrawal of the impaired driving allegations, entered a guilty plea to dangerous driving and successfully argued for a conditional discharge. The client completed the terms of his discharge and does not have a criminal record. This case demonstrates that sometimes it is best to avoid a risky trial. Defending a criminal case always involves a balancing of competing interests. In many cases, the interest for the accused is finding a path that will not result in a criminal record, or at the very least, a permanent one. For MK the conditional discharge was a very favourable outcome in the circumstances of the case. The reality is, had the trial proceeded, MK was at risk of being convicted of impaired driving and dangerous driving -- which would have resulted in a criminal record and potentially much higher sanctions.
