Haha! No, it was talking on a cell phone while driving - which I wasn't anyway - and forgetting to renew my validation sticker. Anyway, due to institutional delays it was 20 months before my trial first came to court which was a default stay based on a right to trial within a reasonable time - known as 11b in Canada. Further, at this time I asked for a preliminary motion to stay the charges at that time which was denied to me - they said I couldn't do it, when in fact I could as I cited under the "Rules of Court" under the Courts of Justice Act. I then told the prosecutor if she didn't withdraw the charges that I would be filing a grievance with the law society that my right to a fair trial had been invalidated by procedural errors on the prosecutor's part - in short, she didn't know the law or was being disingenuous at best in order to try and coerce me into into a plea to a lesser charge. She disagreed and I told her 'Fine, we'll let the judge make a ruling on that.' So then she made me sat there until the end - getting her little jab in - before withdrawing the charges. It was pretty sweet.
