Driving While Disqualified Charge in Edmonton
If 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.
