R. vs. R.V. – Surrey Provincial Court
Charge: Driving While Prohibited.
Issue: Given our client’s circumstances and the circumstances in which he drove, whether it was in the public interest to proceed with the charge.
Result: Mr. Mines presented our client’s background information to Crown and was able to persuade Crown to procceed on the lesser charge of Driving without a valid drivers’ licence. Rather than a 12 month minimum driving prohibition, our client was sentenced to a nighttime driving prohibition from 10 pm to 6 am.
