Criminal Defense Lawyer for DUI Charges

Facing Criminal Charges for Drunk Driving? Hire a Toronto Lawyer

Regina v. Bennett, [2008] (Ont. Crt)

Ms Bennett, an executive and woman who had never been in trouble with the law before was charged with refusing to comply with a breath sample and over 80. She met with Ms Shemesh who passionately defended her with a view to cross examining the police about their failure to ensure that Ms Bennett was afforded with proper legal counsel prior to complying with the breath demand. Ms Shemesh cross examined the police officers and it was discovered that Ms Bennett had in fact contacted a lawyer and was awaiting their arrival to blow into the device. Police refused such a request and charged her accordingly. With her license at stake, Ms Shemesh argued that this was wrong in law and unfair in principle. The Court agreed.
