Vancouver Criminal Lawyer: Meghan Forhan

Cough Syrup IRP

The Facts:

Client was pulled over while driving after he swerved due to being distracted while texting on his phone. Upon being stopped, the police officer made a roadside ASD demand. The client failed both his ASD tests despite not having drank any alcohol that day. After speaking with the client Ms. Forhan learned he had consumed cough syrup and 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 The IRP was revoked on the basis of unreliable ASD tests.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.
