7th Impaired Driving Conviction – No Jail!


CC: s.253(1)(a) – Impaired Driving, s.253(1)(b) – Driving while over .08%


My client, after drinking too much alcohol, lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a tree.


It was his 7th conviction for impaired driving. He should have gone to jail for 6 to 9 months. Instead, he pleaded guilty to one charge and received a fine of $2000, with 12 months time to pay. The other charge was withdrawn.
