26 Jan Assaults
Toronto Assault Lawyer Robb MacDonald Can Help With Your Case.
Robb has defended numerous assault cases – both simple and complex. Assault allegations may comprise aggravated assault, assault causing bodily harm, and assault with a weapon.
There are a few basic elements that make up an “assault.” For an individual to be convicted of “assault”, the Crown Prosecutor must convince the court, beyond a reasonable doubt:
- That the Defendant applied force directly or indirectly to the Complainant
- That the Defended intended to apply force
- That the complainant did not consent to the application of force by the accused.
If the court is not convinced beyond a reasonable doubt of each of these factors, the accused will be found not guilty.
However, the definition of Assault in the Criminal Code of Canada has recently expanded and now criminalizes “attempts” as well as “threats” of assault.
Robb has won many assault trials. He has also negotiated to have several assault charges withdrawn or stayed by the Crown Prosecutor.
If you’ve been charged with assault, contact Robb for a free consultation today. It’s important to not waste anymore time – as key witnesses, evidence and helpful information may only be available for a short time after an arrest is made.
