A Simpsons Corner man facing charges of impaired driving three months after being sentenced on a same charge has asked for time to see a lawyer. Forty-seven year old Randall James Durling was fined $600 February 23d . He had been set to go to trial on a charge of impaired driving causing bodily harm, but changed his plea to a lesser offence of impaired driving. The initial charge stemmed from a collision in Nineveh in December 2007. The latest charges were laid May 22nd when Durling was stopped in New Canada. Along with the impaired and breathalyzer counts, Durling is also charged with operating a motor vehicle while disqualified, and possession of marijuana.  He's scheduled to be back in court June 24th.
