Did you know that consequences for a first-time conviction for a DUI include the following?
- A mandatory minimum one-year loss of licence (the driving prohibition can be up to three years)
- A mandatory minimum fine of $1000 (fines are usually higher than the minimum)
- A mandatory and costly driver education program (i.e. the “Back on Track Program”)
- Rental of an ignition-lock breath testing machine in your vehicle for nine months for a first-time offender
- Increased insurance rates
Changes that were made to the Criminal Code of Canada in 2008 have made this very technical area of the law even more complicated. These changes include increased detection and prosecution of drug-related impairment. Some lawyers who take these cases are not up-to-date on the laws.
We keep track of legal and scientific issues in Brantford such as breath testing machine operation, roadside testing, drug recognition testing, and constitutional questions, and confront them in court.
Kruse Law Firm is also experienced in highly technical special “defences” such as evidence to the contrary, rights to counsel and detention issues, loss of evidence by police, delay in coming to trial, and technical disclosure of Intoxilyzer or Breathalyzer records.
