Violent Criminal Offences against the person involve the use or threatened use of violence against a person, including homicide, attempted murder, assault, sexual assault and robbery.
Indictable offences are the most serious offences under the Criminal Code and come with more serious punishments. Examples of this type of offence are theft over $5,000, assault or murder.
The sentence imposed for a violent criminal offence conviction depends on the offence, you could receive a penalty as high as life in a correctional center. Nevertheless, a conviction for any criminal offence will result in a criminal record, which can negatively impact many areas of your life including your reputation, your ability to maintain or obtain employment, and your ability to travel to other countries like the United States. In addition, a conviction for these offences may carry other penalties, including a potentially lengthy term of imprisonment.
Now is not the time to delay! Your reputation, future, and freedom are too important. In all cases, you are well advised to immediately speak with Mr. Beckett so he can evaluate your case, get your side of the story, and relentlessly defend you against your charges.
