How Can a Criminal Code Charge Be Beat?

Criminal Charges May Be Defeated In Various Ways Such As Challenging the Evidence Through a Strategic Cross-Examination of Witnesses For the Prosecution So to Give Rise to Reasonable Doubt That the Person Charged Is Actually Guilty.

Understanding the Defences Applicable to Various Criminal Code Charges Including Methods to Show a Reasonable Doubt

Defence Advocacy Services Involving Certain Alleged Criminal Offences A person charged for, allegedly, violating the Criminal Code, R.S.C. 1985, c. C-46, will surely suffer from the stresses and concerns involved in legal process of a criminal case while also suffering from the worry of, among other things, the potential penalties such as a sizeable fines, a possible jail sentence, an adverse affects upon future job opportunities, and much more.

The Criminal Law

The Criminal Code contains hundreds of sections that prescribe criminality to various forms of conduct. Prosecution of Criminal Code offences involve different sets of procedures that may apply depending on the seriousness of the alleged crime.  The most severe offences, known as indictable offences, involve the most formal procedures.  The less severe offences, known as summary offences, provide for a leaner and more efficient process.  Additionally, some offences, known as hybrid offences, are selectable as either indictable proceedings or summary conviction proceedings at the option of the prosecutor acting for the Crown.

A lawyer may provide client representation for either an indictable or a summary conviction Criminal Code case.  A paralegal may provide client representation only for specific summary conviction Criminal Code cases or for certain hybrid offences if, and only after, the Crown prosecutor has chosen to prosecute the matter as a summary conviction proceeding case.

Defence Strategy

Choosing a defence strategy that best suits your criminal charge will depend upon, the specific nature of the charge, the strength or weakness of the available evidence, and the strength or weakness of testimony from the anticipated witnesses.  With this said, and as applies to a case involving any type of charge, most, and perhaps all, defence strategies will focus upon poking holes in the case of the prosecution and thereby raising a reasonable doubt.
