Ontario criminal | Criminal Law | Appeals | Appeal from conviction or acquittal
Accused was convicted of impaired care and control and driving with excessive blood alcohol. Accused appealed. Appeal allowed in part. Acquittal was entered on impaired care and control. Conditional stay on driving with excessive blood alcohol was lifted and conviction entered on that count. Finding of guilt on impaired care and control charge, in light of there being little evidence or argument and no reasons given with respect to it, was unreasonable. Trial judge found accused guilty but did not specify on which of two counts. Information, perhaps not surprisingly given confusion, recorded stay on driving with excessive blood alcohol and conviction on impaired driving.
