  • 15 April 2015

CC: s.255(3) – Impaired Driving Causing Death, s.249(4) – Dangerous Driving Causing Death, s.252 – Fail to Remain at the Scene of an Accident.


My client caused the death of his passenger as a result of a high speed rollover, while driving dangerously, and while his ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by alcohol. If convicted, the Crown would have been seeking a period of incarceration in excess of 10 years.


Found Not Guilty after trial and lengthy closing arguments. Judge said: “I would have preferred to find you guilty, but the evidence wasn’t there.”Reported in local newspapers and radio. No criminal convictions.
