Vancouver Criminal Lawyer: Joel Whysall

Client charged with Impaired Driving and Driving Over .08

The Facts:

Accused pulled over by the Burnaby RCMP for swerving. There was an odour of liquor on the breath of the accused and the accused failed a roadside breath test. The accused was arrested and transported to the police station where breath tests were made showing a blood alcohol concentration above the legal limit.

The Result:

The accused was found not guilty. The breath samples are inadmissible evidence because the demand for the breath samples was invalid and not made pursuant to the criminal code.
