Types of Violent Offences
Aurora Violent Offence Attorneys
Violent crimes are defined in Part VIII of the Criminal Code of Canada. In general, violent crimes involve the use of force or threat of use of force against a person or property. For example, the intent to take another person’s possessions without their consent is similar in nature but takes on different meanings when violence becomes involved.
Some violent crimes are considered indictable offences. In other words, they are considered the most serious offences under criminal law. Moreover, they come with serious punishments. If the matter proceeds to trial and if convicted, harsh prison time or fines may be applied to you.
The criminal justice system can be daunting. If you are facing violent crime charges, having skilled legal representation can be crucial for your case. Sondhi Defence are trusted criminal lawyers in Aurora, Ontario. We can provide you with professional criminal defence representation in violent crime cases.
Types of Violent Offences
Violent offences can include assault, kidnapping, attempted murder, or any other criminal act that involves violence.
The type of offence someone is charged with will determine the type of court process that will apply to your case. It will also determine the type of punishment that a person might receive if convicted.
The Crown takes these matters seriously and will often seek a penalty well above the minimum. Having an experienced criminal lawyer on your team is key if you want to fight back against charges brought by law enforcement, which can always seem intimidating.
Here are some of the offences we can help you with.
Robbery is a serious crime that can result in severe punishment. Depending on the circumstances, you may face life imprisonment if convicted of this charge alone — there are also mandatory minimums for using firearms which vary depending upon what province/territory it took place in.
Kidnapping is a very serious charge that can be used to describe the act of taking someone against their will from one place and forcing them into another. The legal definition states clearly what circumstances would fall under this classification, so if someone accused you of this crime, contact us at Sondhi Defence for proper representation.
Unlawful confinement is a serious charge that can result in imprisonment for 10 years and is an indictable offence, as well as being punishable on summary conviction.
The Crown needs to prove that the alleged victim was forced to remain in place against their will. In many cases, this becomes a matter of who said what and validating two parties’ words against each other can be a difficult task when one party may be lying about being confined.
Armed Robbery (with a firearm)
If you find yourself facing charges for a violent crime, such as robbery or homicide, there is always a chance that your sentence could be increased due to its severity. However, with an experienced legal team like Sondhi Defence on board things might not turn out quite like expected!
