Over 80 Charges in Ontario
If you’ve been charged with an “over 80”, this means that your blood alcohol concentration was measured as being over .08 percent when analyzed by a police officer or technician at the time of a vehicle stop. It also means that you could be facing a complex legal process as well as criminal charges.
Because over 80 charges are based on the readings of a scientific instrument, the way these cases play out can be very different than other types of impaired driving cases. However, the science of breath tests are not exact, and the breath sample must be obtained and analyzed by qualified technicians. Therefore, there are many opportunities for issues to arise throughout the process of analyzing your breath sample, and many avenues that your lawyer can explore to impact the outcome of your over 80 charges.
