Vancouver Criminal Lawyer: Meghan Forhan

Acid Reflux IRP

The Facts:

Client was pulled over after leaving a restaurant where she consumed a single glass of white wine. The client suffered from GERDS, commonly known as acid reflux. Due to the acid reflux, the client had stomach acid enter her esophagus which contained traces of the white wine causing her to fail both of her ASD tests. Ms. Forhan hired an independent forensic alcohol expert to draft an expert report confirming that the recent consumption of cough syrup invalidated the ASD tests. The IRP was revoked on the basis of unreliable ASD tests.

The Result:

I IRP revoked. Client back on the road after 21 days rather than 90.
