- Everyone has the right to defend themselves in court.

- Everyone has the right to have a judge listen to your case within a reasonable period of time.
Many drivers may feel that if the police have arrested you for impaired driving that you’re automatically guilty, which is wrong.
For every impaired driving charge there are issues and defenses available. The police do make mistakes, charge people improperly and violate people’s rights. And many times people are just not guilty of what the police are alleging.
It is the driver’s right under Canadian law to present your defense, to have a Judge hear what happened and for the judge to make a decision about the guilt or innocence, not the police.
The law on impaired driving is strict, and the police and the crown attorney must do everything properly and legally to obtain a conviction against the accused. Your rights as a Canadian citizen cannot be violated.
There are defenses to impaired driving charges and at Charitsis Law we know how to help you.
