Charge: Dangerous Driving Causing Death.
Issue: Whether Crown could prove that our client had the necessary intent to prove that she was guilty of the criminal charge.
Result: Mr. Mines was able to persuade Crown counsel to proceed under the Motor Vehicle Act rather than the Criminal Code. After hearing Mr. Mines’ submissions, the Court sentenced our client to 60 days to be served on weekends. The Crown had originally sought a sentence in the range of 2 years.
