The client, a northern Alberta welder, was charged with his 5th impaired driving offence out in Peace River. Should a conviction follow, the client was looking at a very lengthy jail sentence. Prior to trial, Mr. Wyman filed written argument, alleging that the client’s arrest was unlawful and that the breath samples procured (which were more than 3 times the legal limit) ought to be suppressed. Notwithstanding the high blood alcohol readings and the prior convictions, this argument carried the day. All charges against the accused were withdrawn.
