Ottawa police arrest 6 on 75 charges

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Trafficking on Friday February 28, 2014.

This week's story is a bit outside the GTA, but is worthy of being covered just because of the enormous number of charges levelled against six individuals. The Ottawa police department had been working with the Ontario Provincial Police and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for the past two years to bring down what they are calling a cocaine ring. Whether each individual is facing all 75 charges or whether they are...

The doctor is accused of sexually assaulting at least 21 women while they underwent surgery at North York General Hospital, but the doctor argues that it would have been impossible for the...

Conviction stayed for man beaten by police

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Criminal Defence on Wednesday February 19, 2014.

There are certain rights that all Canadian defendants and suspects have, many of which are designed to protect them from inappropriate treatment by the government. This includes police. There are certain things that police officers just can't do to suspects. One of the reasons is because if a suspect talks or admits to something, police want the admission to be of the suspect's own free will. If a court believes...

Toronto man pleads guilty to trafficking crack cocaine

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Trafficking on Friday February 14, 2014.

Though many in the Greater Toronto Area may think a criminal defence lawyer's job is to clear a defendant's name, that is only part of the job. A big part of a defence lawyer's work is protecting his or her client's rights. From police to prosecutors, a defendant's rights could be violated at any time. Working to prevent any such violation and protesting when the defendant's rights are infringed upon...

An Ontario man was recently sentenced to 100 days in jail, ordered to stay away from alcohol and will not be able to drive for the next 30 months after he was arrested for driving through a red light at the rocket-fast speed of 15 km/h.

Police say daycare operator admitted to leaving child alone

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in violent crimes on Monday February 03, 2014.

It can be extremely frightening to be suspected of a crime. To have police question you in an interrogation room can be confusing, stressful and, above all else, terrifying. Even though Ontario police must advise someone being arrested of his or her right to a lawyer, the individual cannot have a lawyer present during interrogation. Though anyone arrested of a crime can speak with a lawyer before the interrogation, he or she...
