LOL I wonder how many work/vacation days he used to save a mere $600 dollars. The again, who in the right mind would speed excessively while not wearing a seatbelt.

Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

Good read and good to know. Although, I have heard arguments on behalf of the crown coming from the JJP that ignorance of proper notification must be made to the courts that there will be a Charter challenge is not an excuse and that part of the accused's argument was dismissed.

Actually, I am looking into this right now after 13 months. You must show that the delay prejudiced your defense. Its not the time delay itself that is examined but the that the delay diminished your defense with no fault of yourself. This has been successful in as little as 8 months. Over a year is a strong case. Time is calculated from receipt of ticket to first court date. Any delay on your part is not counted.

Be sure to submit your Charter argument before the trial date if thats the route you're choosing. Like I mentioned, I have seen JJPs throw that argument out right away on people who come to court having not done anything about it prior to trial.

Yes, you are correct, you need to file 2 weeks prior to your court date. You can get a package at the Crown Council office at the courthouse on Robson. You need to show that the delay caused prejudice.
