R. vs. J.X. – Vancouver Provincial Court

Charges: Driving while prohibited (MVA).

Issue: Whether the delay in approving the charge was relevant to our client’s right to a speedy trial.

Result: Mr. Mines was able to persuade Crown counsel to proceed on the lesser offence of driving without a valid driver’s licence. Rather than a 12 month driving prohibition and 10 penalty points, our client was sentenced to a 3 month driving prohibition and received only 3 penalty points.
