Search & Seizure
Section 8 of the Charter can be used as a basis to challenge search warrants, wiretaps, and other seizures by law enforcement officers including breath and blood samples in impaired driving cases. Greg DelBigio has significant experience dealing with this area of the law.
Greg frequently represents clients facing criminal proceedings that arise out of searches of their premises or person and seizure of incriminating evidence including:
- Drug searches
- DUI searches (breathalyzer / blood alcohol samples)
- Searches in the context of Proceeds of Crime / Money Laundering offences
- Searches for evidence used during the commission of a crime.
The law governing the legality of a search warrant and the use of evidence obtained during the course of a search is closely related to Search and Seizure and constitutes another area in which Greg DelBigio regularly represents clients.
