Impaired driving cause bodily harm
Impaired Driving Causing Bodily Harm
– Section 255(2) of the Criminal Code states, “everyone who commits an offence under paragraph 253(1)(a) and causes bodily harm to another person as a result is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term of not more than 10 years”.
The consequences of impaired driving cause bodily harm are much more serious than a simple impaired driving charge. First and foremost a conviction of this charge most often starts with a jail sentence. We have had numerous cases where jail has been avoided but upon conviction this is not the norm in the Ontario Court of Justice. In addition the Courts will often impose a longer period of driving prohibition if convicted of impaired driving cause bodily harm.
