Two siblings charged after search uncovers drugs

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in drug charges on Friday July 25, 2014.

Let's say the police show up at a home you share with several people and have a search warrant. If they are trying to find evidence of drugs, they can look through most of the home and, if your housemates have any contraband in the home, there could be serious consequences. But those consequences may not be restricted solely to your housemates. During the search, if they find drugs in the...

Human Rights Commission questions Ontario Provincial Police

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Thursday July 24, 2014.

One of the best things about Ontario and Canada in general is that it truly is a multicultural mosaic of different cultures and peoples. There are immigrants living next to native-born Canadians. There are people of various skin colours, religions and ethnic backgrounds all living and working together. At the same time, there are some who believe that certain groups are more prone to violent crime. This can be especially...

The effects of cocaine use on employment

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in drug charges on Friday July 18, 2014.

As we have written about before, being suspected of drug use can have serious consequences. Not only could someone face criminal drug charges, but he or she could also have an untold number of problems at work, at home and in one's personal life. By working with a criminal defence lawyer, however, someone charged with drug crimes can at least alleviate some of the more difficult aspects -- the drug charges....

Crown prosecutors drop charges after review of evidence

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drunk Driving on Tuesday July 15, 2014.

Drinking and driving is against the law in Ontario, but only when a driver's blood alcohol content exceeds a specific level. If the driver's blood alcohol level is over 80 milligrams per 100 millilitres, he or she could be facing serious criminal charges and punishment. When the driver is a public figure such as Jonas Valanciunas of the Toronto Raptors, a criminal charge can also seriously damage a driver's reputation. Just because...

Sometimes criminal charges just don’t make sense

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in violent crimes on Saturday July 12, 2014.

You could expect that if you threw a knife at someone that you would be facing criminal charges. You could also expect to face assault charges for hitting someone, kicking them or maybe even pushing them. Not many people in the Greater Toronto Area would expect, however, for someone to be facing criminal charges for throwing a juice box at an individual and pouring the juice on the hood of a her...

Government uses forfeiture laws to claim offenders’ property

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Manufacturing & Cultivation on Thursday July 10, 2014.

Anyone who says that the federal and provincial governments are soft on marijuana crimes may need to rethink his or her opinion. Though it is far from universal, there are a number of cases in which the government will attempt to seize an offender's property solely because he or she had a marijuana grow op on the land. Because of criminal forfeiture laws, the government may have a claim to any land...

Should poor judgment result in criminal charges?

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Domestic Violence on Thursday July 03, 2014.

We don't always make the best decisions. It is just part of human nature to make mistakes or to not do what makes the most sense. Most of the time those mistakes have very few long-term or serious consequences, but sometimes they do. Even when they do, though, should a simple mistake or spate of bad judgment lead to criminal charges? Unfortunately, sometimes they do. A Whitby man has been...
