Turning Yourself In

I’ve been asked to turn myself in. What do I do now?

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees everyone’s right to silence, and a right to retain and instruct counsel without delay.

You are therefore never required to provide a statement or to attend the police station when asked. More importantly, it is best to get legal advice from a criminal defence lawyer as soon as possible.

What you should do if you have been asked to turn yourself in

It is usually better to turn yourself in than to wait for the police to pick you up. However, it is very important to obtain proper legal advice to ensure that your rights are protected prior to turning yourself in. Every case is different, and the expert lawyers at Sondhi Defence will have the knowledge and experience to guide you through the process.
