Does murder suspect’s lie make all her testimony suspect?

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in violent crimes on Wednesday April 30, 2014.

What would you do if police held you in an interrogation room for four hours following the death of your mother and the near death of your father? Most people would have no idea, as they simply can't fathom what that situation would be like. Although some people may say that they would be calm, collected and keep their wits about them, it may be easier to say than do....

2 young men arrested in Hamilton on drug charges

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Trafficking on Friday April 25, 2014.

When people read that someone has been arrested for drug trafficking, they likely think of police raiding a home or a warehouse filled with drugs. They probably picture police moving out hundreds of kilograms of cocaine, heroin or other serious drugs. What they probably don't think of are two young men being charged with trafficking illegal drugs after being caught with relatively few drugs. Unfortunately for two men from Hamilton, the Ontario...

Sex offender’s history, admissions makes his claims suspect

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Wednesday April 23, 2014.

There is no denying the fact that sex crimes are horrific. The problem is, however, that many people see little difference in someone being charged with sexual assault and being convicted of sexual assault. Just being associated with some kind of sex crime, even if it is an accusation, is enough for many people to consider a defendant guilty. If that is true, just imagine how difficult it is for individuals to...

Manufacturer charged with producing controlled substances

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Manufacturing & Cultivation on Friday April 18, 2014.

Are synthetic drugs illegal? Health Canada and the police say they are, but the CEO of one of the biggest synthetic drug manufacturers says that none of the ingredients of his company's products are considered controlled substances. So, who is right? There is no real answer, but if the police and Health Canada have said the drugs are illegal, an individual could find him- or herself in serious trouble, even...

Convicting a defendant in the court of public opinion

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Wednesday April 16, 2014.

Canadian law says that anyone accused of a crime will be considered innocent until he or she is proven guilty. Without this rule in place, it might be incredibly common for individuals to be convicted on the nature of the charges alone. The more repulsive, frightening or serious the crime, the harder it would be not to convict the individual. Fortunately for people in Toronto, the rule is to be...

Marijuana manufacturer’s crop seized by law enforcement

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Trafficking on Thursday April 10, 2014.

As we discussed a few weeks ago, the federal medical marijuana laws have been changing, which has been quite confusing for both patients, as well as providers. It is not just patients who can get in trouble if they are not in strict compliance with the medical marijuana laws. If a grower, producer or manufacturer isn't following the letter of the law, the individuals involved in the business could face trafficking...

Sexual assault, murder witness was on Skype during crime

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Tuesday April 08, 2014.

In order for someone to be charged with and convicted of something as serious as sexual assault or murder, there must be sufficient credible evidence to support the conviction. And, in order for that evidence to be admitted into court, it must be lawfully gathered. Not only does this keep the criminal justice system fair for all Canadians, but it also protects against government intrusion into our affairs. Approximately three...

Brampton athlete forgives police brutality

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Possession on Wednesday April 02, 2014.

Although the name Orlando Bowen may not be on everyone's lips in the Greater Toronto Area, this Brampton resident was once a linebacker for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. His football career has since ended due to a concussion, a concussion he suffered after he says he was beaten police outside of a Mississauga night club. The football player had been standing near his car when two men approached him looking for...
