Have you been charged with refusing or failing to provide a breath sample? DeMelo Law is experienced in defending these types of charges. In order to be convicted, the Crown must prove that you refused or failed to comply with a peace officer’s request to provide multiple, suitable breath samples without lawful excuse. “Lawful excuses” are limited, and the onus is on the accused to prove that their excuse for refusing the breath sample is true and lawful.
Refusal to provide a breath sample charges are associated with Impaired Driving or Over 80 charges, as they come with similar strict driving restrictions and criminal penalties (read more about Impaired Driving here). These restrictions interfere with your personal and work life, and we understand that can be stressful.
You do not have to go through this alone.
