Involved in a leakage-causing injury case while driving her vehicle with impaired capacity, Annie Lavoie de Dixville will turn to court facilitation in order to evolve her file.
His lawyer Michel Dussault turned to this option on Tuesday at the Sherbrooke Courthouse before fixing the trial in the case of the 39-year-old woman.
Annie Lavoie is accused of leaking offenses causing injuries, driving with impaired abilities causing injuries and impaired driving on November 18, 2016.
Dixville’s wife is accused of having struck a 15-year-old boy while driving on Highway 143 in Dixville.
The teenager was on the street because he was trying to get through pigs. Annie Lavoie then struck the teenager. She would not have stopped at the scene of the accident.
She was arrested a few minutes later by police officers of the Sûreté du Québec who managed to trace her track after a short investigation. She was likely to have a strong smell of alcohol. Under the breathalyzer test, she would have registered a rate above the limit allowed by law.
The pedestrian collision occurred at about 7 pm on Route 143 near Falconer Road. The victim in this case sustained serious injuries. He was found inanimate near the railing of Route 143 in Dixville by the police.
The case will return to court on 6 July.
