SUMMARY CRIMINAL CONVICTIONS

WE CAN HELP

Facing a criminal charge is without a doubt extremely stressful. We provide cost effective support through professional advise, guidance and representation for individuals facing charges under the Criminal Code of Canada for summary conviction offences. This is where the maximum penalty is a $2,000 fine or imprisonment to a maximum of 6 months, or both, for offences such as:

  • Indecent acts, public nudity, prostitution
  • Causing disturbance, vagrancy, cruelty to animals, assault, possession of a weapon, mischief regarding property
  • Theft under $5,000 or possession of stolen property under $5,000
  • Fraud, forgery, making false statements

Although these offences may be less serious than indictable offences, getting professional advice is crucial to having a better chance at a successful defense. AJ Murray Legal Services aspires be a facilitator towards increased access to justice for Ontarians and will help you as you try to navigate your way through our judicial system at a most stressful point in your life.
