R. vs. S.J. – Port Coquitlam Provincial Court

Charge: Driving While Prohibited.

Issue: Whether the crown would be able to prove that our client was the driver of the vehicle.

Result: We were able to persuade Crown counsel that there was problem with the identification evidence and, therefore, to proceed on the lesser offence of driving without a valid driver’s licence.  Rather than a one year minimum driving prohibition, our client was sentenced to a $500 fine. No driving prohibition.
