Impaired Driving

When you are charged with an Impaired Driving offence (Impaired Driving, Over .08, Refusal to provide a sample) you face upon conviction a minimum sentence of a 1 year driving prohibition and a $1000 fine. With the victim fine surcharge this works out to a minimum of $1300. 

Because of the nature of these offences, you may feel that you are already guilty because you have blown over the limit.  However, in order for the Crown to prove that in court the Crown has to be able to show that the police obtained that information lawfully and correctly.  As such, there are many defenses to impaired driving and over 80 charges. Benedict Leung will review your disclosure and determine if you have any defences available.
