Sexual assault accusations and charges can have devastating and wide-ranging consequences. If you're convicted of sexual assault or a related offence, your life will likely never be the same. You may face a lengthy prison sentence and a crushing stigma that will continue to follow you long after you've paid your debt to society.
Being accused of, arrested for, or charged with a sexually-based crime can be frightening. However, The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees citizens important rights in any criminal investigation or court proceeding, and cases involving various types of sexual assault are no exception. Understanding and exercising these rights and having a knowledgeable and experienced Ontario criminal defence lawyer by your side is absolutely vital. Fortunately, you've come to the right place.
