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.
