Sexual assault charge against former CBC host withdrawn

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Tuesday May 31, 2016.

This past March we wrote about the acquittal of former CBC host Jian Ghomeshi from several sexual assault charges. At that time, though the man was found not guilty of four counts of sexual assault and one count of choking, his legal issues were not resolved. He faced another count of sexual assault, the trial for which was supposed to take place this summer. That charge was recently resolved as well....

Readers are likely aware that medical marijuana is legal in Ontario, available from dispensaries found throughout the province.

Criminal laws apply to all in Ontario, even law enforcement

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Monday May 23, 2016.

The laws in place in the province of Ontario apply to all. This means that no one—even a law enforcement officer—is immune from criminal charges. This is illustrated in the recent charges laid against a Toronto police officer. The man, a police sergeant who has been with Toronto’s police force for more than 20 years, is facing two charges of sexual assault stemming from incidents that allegedly occurred last fall,...

Test currently lacking for driving impaired due to marijuana

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Criminal Defence on Friday May 20, 2016.

As readers are likely well aware, the laws in place in Ontario regarding drunk driving are well established. The same cannot be said however for impaired driving due to marijuana. Currently law enforcement does not have a good way to determine whether someone who is believed to be high from pot, is in fact too impaired to drive. With the possibility of marijuana becoming legal becoming more and more of a reality,...

Domestic violence and psychedelic drugs

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Domestic Violence on Monday May 09, 2016.

Domestic violence court is not cruel and unusual punishment

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Domestic Violence on Friday May 06, 2016.

Readers may be aware that in Ontario, there is a special court in which domestic violence matters may be handled. The court is specifically designed to address domestic violence allegations between intimate partners. Other cases of this nature, involving people who do not fit that definition, are heard in a criminal court. Recently, a man who was charged with bail breach after he allegedly violated specifications that he was to...

90 investigation culminates in arrest of 80 people

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Monday May 02, 2016.

In our last post we wrote about a traffic stop that led to criminal charges. While this is one possible catalyst for criminal charges, there are other things that could lead to an arrest and charges. Sometimes they are preceded by an investigation. Recently, a three month long investigation was conducted which collected information on people suspected of either visiting child porn sites or downloading child pornography. In the course...
