R. v. L.M.
Client stopped by police who demanded he provide a breath sample. Although he attempted several times, he could not provide a “suitable” one. He was charged with Refuse to Provide Breath Sample. At trial, I challenged the grounds for which the police had to make the demand in the first place. As well, I argued that the police did not prove that the breath sample device was one that was “approved” by law.
Result: Charge was dismissed after trial.
