Probably not the right place, but fatal error questin

Unread post by Powergrid on

Hi All;

Big stupid mistake I made. Tearing up the grass of a business, slid sideways, tipped my truck up on its passenger side.
Karma...

Anyway, the officer charged me with Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle and Mischief under 5k. I know these are criminal in nature.

However, the officer made three mistakes on the summons/ticket.
1) He had the date/day wrong for the notice to appear. He wrote "Tuesday, October 14". The 14th is a Monday.
2) He had the day/date wrong for court date. He wrote "Monday, December 13". The 13th is a Tuesday.
3) The date of Issue for the infraction was written as "December 5". This happened on November 5, so technically, I'm being charged with something I haven't done yet.

Anyone have experience with these many and types of errors?

Thanks,

Wrong forum. Criminal matters are much more serious and you should get a lawyer. Criminal matters are not usually tossed from wrong dates. They are not fatal and dealt with by a new appearance notice if the court date is wrong.

Fatal errors only apply to regular traffic tickets with set fines, not summons (provincial or criminal).
