Criminal impaired charges dropped against two clients

August 2020

In August of 2020, criminal charges were dropped against two of Joe Saulnier’s clients charged with various drinking and driving related charges. Both cases had been set for trial.

One client had been charged in relation to an alleged series of car accidents the police believed was caused by our client driving while being impaired by drugs. He was charged with dangerous driving, impaired driving, and refusal to provide a urine sample.

The second client was charged with impaired driving, refusal to provide a breath sample, and obstruction of justice after the police alleged he was found passed out in his car on a curb.

In both cases, the clients pleaded guilty to careless driving under the Motor Vehicle Act and received fines, but no driving prohibition and no criminal record.
