DUI Offense in Ontario Canada, What happens next?

Impaired driving such as DUI or DWI is considered a criminal offense in Ontario Canada and not only does it come with a hefty fine, there could also be substantial jail time included. A criminal offense in Ontario Canada is considered a complicated matter. It is in your best interest to remain calm and try not to do or say anything that would implicate you with guilt at the scene of the accident or when you're being pulled over by the police for suspicion of drinking while driving or driving while under the influence of some other substance.

It is probably in your best interest to hire a Lawyer to help you with a DUI/DWI ticket or other impaired driving offense.

A first offense in Ontario Canada for impaired driving gets the driver a suspended license for up to one year, a fine of up to $600 and installation of an ignition interlock system for a period of one year - and the installation charges for this equipment are your responsibility. With a second offense for impaired driving, a driver will receive a suspended license for up to three years, a mandatory jail term to be determined by the courts, installation of an ignition interlock system for a period of three years - and installation charges for this equipment are your responsibility, in addition to mandatory participation in the Back on Track Course for a period of 11 months.

Other penalties that may occur with a DUI or DWI or related impaired driving charge include having your auto insurance increased or being dropped altogether from an auto insurance company, the denial of entry into certain countries because of a criminal record that is now stamped on your permanent record and possible job loss or loss of future employment due to the criminal record.

Several of the impaired driving ticket charges can be reduced or successfully defended due to a technical breach which may occur when the police are gathering their evidence needed to demonstrate that a driver was indeed impaired. Under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, often called the “Charter”, many of these breaches violate the driver's rights and can be used by one's attorney to argue the matter in front of the judge in your favor.
