you're only impaired when you're drunk and i'd venture to guess he wasn't.

I honestly don't even think he needs to show up for his first appearance, and it could likely be deferred for whatever reason. Working as a community social worker with clients with legal issues, I've seen a case far more serious than this deferred for around 9 months until a final decision was made. Therefore, I doubt Jonas needs to make that first appearance, and could likely get it postponed for a few weeks, or month at least.

Can he take a no-contest now, and take his 2 game suspension starting the next 2 games? Better than dragging this out to the playoffs.

You are impaired when you are impaired. Fuck off with your irresponsible bullshit. It only takes an instant to turn a vehicle into a mangling machine. That's why mobile phone use is illegal. That's why the effects of a few drinks becomes unlawful behind a steering wheel.

I would think so, and it would be a good idea.

Nope. Its a first appearance. There will most likely not be any convictions or charges withdrawn on this date. His lawyer will most likely represent him and postpone a plea deal or a trial.

If he wants this to go on trial or make some deal with the prosecution, the outcome of this charge might not get resolved till a year from now. Im not sure how Collingwood OPP courts are, but in Toronto or York region he would be waiting a long time for a trial date (not the first appearance date).

First appearance dates on almost any arrest are usually 3-5 weeks from date of arrest. Nothing of huge importance gets decided on this day. His lawyer will likely request disclosure on this day, to see exactly what evidence police have against him

The playoffs will be starting around April 20th, his first court date being Tuesday, April 22nd you can almost garantee there will be a game that night. Not a good look, and it couldn't happen at a worse time tbh.

This. No reason for you guys to get down on him about it. Too many teens/youth pull that shit all the time on the weekend and I'm sure it's a very unpleasant experience getting charged with a DUI, not to mention the earful I'm sure his parents gave him, since he's TWENTY-ONE. It was a mistake, and lord knows with the shit he's going to get for this he won't do it again.

They found 0.32‰ alcohol in his blood. You can drive with that in most Europe countries. No criminal here. Relax.

Yeah, the distraction is so completely unneeded. And unnecessary. It's not like players don't get a huge amount of counselling on this shit when they come into the league.

Yes, because when Jonas came into the league he was the most adept at English.

Of course! What was I thinking? He surely must have thought they were telling him to have open beers in the car to ensure proper blood circulation while all cramped up in a vehicle.

I actually checked to see if this was originally posted April 1st.
They're going to have to keep a close eye on him because usually those people do this multiple times before getting caught.

Even though people think it is, it's not funny, not cute and not a small mistake.
He could have been Keon Clark in prison lying there with his feet sticking out of the bars for years for killing someone. I don't think they give you a "young guy" break if you mow down someone's mother.

I think the current warning level after the new law change is pretty fascist (mini rant, but time will tell if it makes a difference) but the law is the law, nobody can argue it after they are caught because we all know the rules. And a millionaire could afford $400 for one weekend day for a cab, car or a limo. And now he is going to have to do it every day for a year. Stoopid.

And ffs... who goes to Wasaga in this weather!!! WTF Jonas!!!

Btw... the open beer in the car, was he alone and wondering was it his? must have been since he blew over. Just wondering because its fine in europe for passengers to drink while the driver is driving so long as the driver isn't drunk.

Ps, his case can be easily postponed to summer thats if our shitty courts even get around to it by then. maybe xcoppers can get him off ;/
