R. vs. S.W. – Richmond Provincial Court

Charge: Refusing to comply with a testing demand.

Issue: Given the circumstances of the offence and our client, whether it was in the public interest to proceed with the criminal prosecution.

Result: Mr. Mines was able to persuade Crown counsel to proceed on the lesser Motor Vehicle Act offence of driving without due care. Rather than a criminal conviction and a minimum 12 month driving prohibition, our client was liable to pay a $350 fine and a 2 month driving prohibition. No criminal record.
