Get Help With Your Criminal Case
Our mission is to connect Canadians charged with criminal offences to the resources they need to understand the criminal justice system and exercise their rights.
Canada Criminal Lawyer (“CCL”) is a legal resource and online directory website that connects Canadians with the source material and people they need to understand the criminal justice system. We are not a law firm and do not provide legal advice.
Canadians charged with criminal offences can call our toll-free phone number (855) 585-1777 to connect with a local lawyer, unaffiliated with CCL, who may be able to provide assistance and legal advice.
Proceed to Trial
Trial dates are typically scheduled several months after the initial court appearance. During the trial, the judge carefully examines all the evidence, which includes witness testimonies. If there has been a violation of your rights, your criminal lawyer may submit a Charter Application to exclude evidence or request the dismissal of charges. This serves to safeguard your rights and ensure that any unlawfully obtained evidence is not taken into account.
Negotiate a Plea Agreement
The term "Crown" refers to the prosecution, representing the government, and presenting the case against the accused. It is possible for the defence and the Crown to achieve a resolution, often referred to as a plea agreement or negotiated resolution, either before or during trial. This happens when both sides mutually agree to an acceptable outcome instead of pursuing a complete trial.
Plead Guilty To a Lesser Offence
In such circumstances, when the accused individual recognizes their involvement in the offence but desires a more favorable outcome, they may elect to enter a guilty plea to a reduced charge. The specifics of the guilty plea are established through negotiations with the Crown or as part of a plea agreement.

Fraud is the deliberate use of deceit, falsehood, or other fraudulent methods to deceive the public or individuals and gain personal benefit in terms of money or property. Examples of fraudulent activities include identity theft, tax evasion, insurance scams, telemarketing fraud, and embezzlement.
Possession of narcotics is legally defined in Part 1, section 4(1) of the CDSA as the act of having a substance listed in Schedule I, II, or III unless authorized by regulations.

Those convicted of criminal offences sometimes have to pay large fines and court surcharges.
In addition to legal fees, your criminal lawyer might also charge you for out of pocket expenses known as "disbursements". This includes things like the cost of travel and printing. Many lawyers bill by the hour but some will offer a flat or fixed fee for service. Talk to a lawyer at a law firm near you about what financial arrangements are possible by calling 1 (855) 585-1777!
It could be a month or it could be years. It depends on the complexity of your case, available court time and other factors. Simple cases without a trial can normally be wrapped up within a few months. Complex cases that require a trial could take much longer. Your criminal lawyer can help time things so that your case doesn't drag on too long.
