Driving While Disqualified Charge in Edmonton

Driving While Disqualified Charge in EdmontonIf you are charged with driving while disqualified in Edmonton, you are facing a very serious criminal charge. While driving while disqualified might not seem like a significant offence, in Edmonton and surrounding area the Crown typically seeks a minimum 30 day jail term following a conviction.

All that the Crown needs to prove in order for you to be found guilty of this offence is that you were driving your vehicle, and that you were disqualified at the time of driving.

In addition to a potential jail sentence, you can also face fines of up to $5000, a minimum driving prohibition of one year to a maximum driving prohibition of 5 years, and a sharp increase in your insurance. Because this is a fairly easy crime to prove and a difficult one to defend, it is in your best interest to contact one of the criminal defence lawyers in our Edmonton office. We have considerable experience negotiating early case resolutions with Crown prosecutors, and can effectively assist you with resolving your matter in the most favorable way possible.

I’m glad I made the right choice to retain the legal services of Mr. Daniel Murphy who represented me in a very difficult criminal case that was very hard to beat due to the circumstances surrounding the case. Mr. Murphy advised me wisely and approached the matter with a well-planned legal strategy. He is well versed with the law and plans ahead. I’m grateful for the depth of intellect he has brought to the court. He is firm, fair and understands the tactics of the crown prosecutors and will not be caught unaware of their plans.
