Mr. G. was a class 1 truck driver who had been charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle. Mr. G. had rear ended a vehicle at a Calgary intersection and fled the scene. One of the witnesses procured his license plate number and contacted the authorities. Police located Mr. G. outside his home with fresh damage on his car. After speaking with him he was heavily intoxicated and placed under arrest for impaired operation and leaving the scene of an accident. He was also charged with refusing to provide a sample after he declined to do so. Recognizing the strength of the Crown case Mr. Wyman immediately coordinated a residential treatment program for the client. After battling his sobriety for countless years, H. was now sober. Given his progress, our office was able to convince crown counsel to impose a curative discharge which ensured that the client not receive a criminal record.
