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

Charge: Driving While Prohibited.
Issue: Whether it was in the public interest to proceed with the charge given the circumstances of the case.
Result: Mr. Mines was able to persuade Crown Counsel to proceed on the lesser offence of driving without a valid driver’s license. Rather than the mandatory minimun 12 month driving prohibition, our client received a driving prohibition of only one month.
