640AM TORONTO RADIO INTERVIEW – AUGUST 04/16
Topic Is Ontario Government Allowing Alcohol Delivery From LCBO.
Lawyer Brian Starkman DUI/DWI (Ontario)
Sometimes an accused person will have an explanation as to why they may have appeared under the influence of alcohol when they really were not. For example, after a significant motor vehicle accident, a driver will often exhibit many of the same symptoms they might if they were impaired i.e. slurred speech, unsteadiness on feet. Again, a skilled lawyer can effectively bring out these alternative explanations with an eye towards creating reasonable doubt in the mind of the judge.
An experienced and competent lawyer who specializes in impaired driving cases is your best bet for success on this charge. Thorough and effective cross examination of police witnesses is the key to success for an impaired driving allegation. A competent cross examiner will know what questions to ask and just as importantly what questions not to ask. An incompetent or inexperienced lawyer can do more harm than good during cross examination.
If you want to maintain your driving privileges after being charged with a drinking and driving offence, you must dispute the charge. Unlike most other criminal charges, a plea bargain is usually out of the question for a drinking and driving charge. Crown Attorneys are directed by their superiors to prosecute drinking and driving offences to their fullest extent. Therefore, if you expect to have any realistic chance of saving your licence, you will need to hire a lawyer who is experienced at taking drinking and driving charges to trial.
You need to be represented by someone who specializes in drinking and driving cases.
