The defendant was charged with Impaired and Over 80.  Once all the evidence was in and legal  argument was made, the judge requested further submissions on a particular point that had been argued.  The matter was set to continue on another day for that purpose.  Before that date, further discussions were held with the prosecutor and rather than continue the trial, an agreement was reached whereby the defendant was allowed to plead guilty to the lesser charge of Careless Driving under the Highway Traffic Act for a fine.  The Impaired and Over 80 charges were withdrawn.  As a result, the defendant was able to avoid a criminal record and any loss of driving privileges.
