At Passi & Patel, our Brampton criminal lawyers recognize that the penalties for such offences are substantial and can have a profound impact on one’s life. Assault with a Weapon or Assault Causing Bodily Harm are both ‘hybrid offences’. The maximum penalty can differ depending on how the Crown choses to proceed. If the Crown proceeds by summary conviction the maximum penalty is 18 months imprisonment or a maximum fine of $5000 or both. If the Crown proceeds by indictment the maximum term of imprisonment is 10 years.
It is of utmost importance that you hire a Brampton criminal law firm that will go above and beyond to defend your case.
