Mississauga Criminal Defence Lawyers

HELP - I'VE BEEN CHARGED WITH AN OFFENCE!

Have you been charged with a criminal, quasi-criminal, or regulatory offence? These charges never come at a “good” time. Being charged with an offence can be scary and disruptive to your life, so it’s important to act swiftly when your reputation, career, and/or well-being are at stake.

In Canada, you are innocent until proven guilty and it is the responsibility of the Crown Attorney to prove guilt in a court of law. It can feel, however, that the burden is on you to defend yourself. It is also possible for an individual to be charged based on false or exaggerated claims. This is why it’s so important to have a criminal defence lawyer in your corner to ensure that your rights are upheld as your matter passes through the criminal justice system.

RETAINING A CRIMINAL DEFENCE LAWYER WHILE IN CUSTODY

If you are being kept in police custody until your bail hearing or pending trial, it is even more important to secure legal counsel right away. You have the right to representation and the police are obligated to allow you to contact a lawyer once you have been searched for weapons and the police have completed the booking process.

Once you have asked for a lawyer, the police are no longer entitled to keep questioning you. If you do not have a lawyer, you are entitled to call someone who is not a lawyer as long as the purpose of the call is for that person to help you get in touch with a lawyer.

Tailor Law’s criminal defence lawyers can be reached toll-free at 1-800-804-4761. They can provide information about how to best -conduct yourself while in custody, and will begin work immediately to get you out of custody so that you can properly deal with your matter together and take steps to minimize the impact of the criminal charges on you and your loved ones.

MAKING BAIL: GETTING OUR OF CUSTODY

In some instances, instead of being released back into the community, and accused is held in custody until their matter is resolved by trial or plea bargain. This is obviously a highly-stressful situation for the accused and their loved ones.

The first step Tailor Law criminal defence lawyers will take is to conduct a bail hearing, which means that we will appear in court as your counsel and put forward our best arguments as to why you rightly deserve your freedom while your case progresses.

Sometimes, in order for bail to be granted, the courts will ask that you provide them with a certain amount of money in order to provide “security” that you will show up for your court date. Other times, the court will require that someone else be “in charge” of making sure you adhere to bail conditions. This person is called a surety, and the courts will often require proof that the surety possesses a certain amount of money, which will be payable to the courts if you violate the terms of your release.

Before setting a bail hearing to determine whether or not you can be released pending trial of your matter, it is important for your lawyer to ensure that everything is in place for your release and to demonstrate as much to the court.
