Crimes of Violence

One of the primary purposes of criminal law legislation is to protect against physical harm.

Any accusation of a crime that involves bodily injury or the threat of bodily injury can involve serious penalties, including jail sentences. Facing allegations of a violent crime involves the risk of acquiring a criminal record, and the associated impact that can have with respect to future employers, lenders, landlords or schools.

Like any other offence, allegations of crimes of violence must be proven by a Crown prosecutor beyond a reasonable doubt. A skilled criminal defense attorney can challenge the prosecution’s evidence and vigorously cross-examine their witnesses to show the weaknesses in their case against you.
