On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Monday June 27, 2016.

In a recent post we wrote about the “he said, she said” nature of some sexual assault cases. These are not the only types of sex crimes that can be difficult to navigate. So too are voyeurism cases. Readers may not be aware that there are laws in the province of Ontario that pertain to voyeurism. In place since 2005, these laws can be difficult for the crown to prove....

Consent a question in some sexual assault cases

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Friday June 24, 2016.

While every criminal charge has the potential to be complicated, some are more difficult to defend against than others. An example of this is where sex crime charges are concerned.

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Possession on Monday June 06, 2016.

There are a variety of situations that could lead to someone being arrested for committing an alleged crime.

Charges for sexual assault may come decades after alleged act

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Saturday June 04, 2016.

In Ontario, authorities take allegations of sexual assault very seriously.

The man, who is now 48, was recently arrested in connection with an incident that allegedly occurred in 1994. Specifically the man is accused of sexually assaulting a boy who spent...
