Types of Assault Cases
We can provide legal advice and services for:
This offence involves the touching of a family member without that person’s consent. A misunderstood fact in these cases is that the decision to define an action as an assault does not rest with the victim. A later “change of heart” will not usually result in the charge being dropped by the Crown prosecuting the case once it is laid. An assault charge is not like a civil action, which is one party against another party. Instead, it is the State against the alleged perpetrator.
This offence may carry heavy penalties, including registration under the Sexual Offender Information Registry Act.
This offence may carry custodial sentences upon conviction for assault causing significant and lasting injury.
This offence may carry serious consequences and could result in significant jail time, depending on a number of factors.
