Toronto man arrested for violent crimes after nightclub incident

There is something about a night out at a loud and crowded social venue that can bring out the worst in some people. Perhaps that is what happened at an east GTA nightclub recently when a fight broke out between two late night revellers . In the aftermath of the fight, a single person now faces charges for violent crimes after allegedly discharging a gun. The incident took place on March 25 at a nightclub about 30 minutes east of Toronto. Just before 2 a.m., two men were removed from the Music Hall on King Street East in downtown Oshawa after the pair got into a…

Man suspected of sexual assault surrenders to police

When one is a suspect in the commission of a violent crime, one's natural inclination may be to try to avoid detection by staying out of sight. A better idea may be to simply cooperate with authorities, within reason. A man accused of sexual assault in Toronto chose that route, after police issued a warrant for his arrest. The incident allegedly occurred on March 23 in an apartment building near Jane Street and Sheppard Avenue. A 17-year-old girl reported she had been held at gunpoint and sexually assaulted. A police statement indicated she was apparently recorded on video at some point during…

Weapons seized, though no evidence of violent crimes present

Sometimes the appearance of a scene can cast an entirely unfavourable light on matters. Despite a lack of any immediately obvious links to violent crimes or criminal activity, police seized a large collection of weapons recently. A man living north of Toronto is now facing a long list of charges as a result. During the evening of March 5, Barrie police acting on a tip raided a Yonge Street home. Tactical officers entered the home and found a large cache of weapons strewn about the premises. Numerous prohibited weapons were discovered, including long guns, miniature cannons and a cane with a…

Charges can pile up after a drinking and driving arrest

Not every story of alleged drunk driving ends with a catastrophic collision. However, many of them do end with an arrest. Sometimes, people accused of drinking and driving face multiple charges and may have a difficult legal ordeal ahead. Such is the case with a woman arrested not far from Toronto just recently. On March 19, a police officer in Brantford saw a vehicle collide with a parked vehicle at around 2:20 a.m. The driver apparently continued driving after the collision. The officer followed the vehicle to a residential location, where the driver parked in a driveway. The officer approached the vehicle,…

Big rig operator suspected of driving under the influence

When the Ontario Provincial Police pull a driver over, there could be several reasons. While a driver might be suspected of driving under the influence, officers still have to determine whether the vehicle operator is in fact impaired and, if so, by what. Any driver who faces charges for driving under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs or even prescribed medication could end up facing severe consequences if convicted. OPP officers arrested a big rig operator shortly after noon on a recent Tuesday. Police alleged the truck driver was swerving across the lanes of Highway 401 and refused to pull…

Drug trafficking charges followed up a recent fentanyl overdose

Courts in Ontario treat any drug offences as serious crimes. Regardless of the severity of the charges, be it possession of a small amount of marijuana or drug trafficking of large amounts of illegal substances, penalties may be steep if a person is convicted. Having an experienced criminal defence lawyer on one’s side can help ensure that any accused individual proceeds with the best possible defense strategy. Police arrested a 46-year-old woman on a recent Saturday evening. They charged her with fentanyl trafficking, possession of criminally obtained property and causing bodily harm to another individual. This followed the response of police and…

Serious criminal allegations follow seizure of explosive device

Few things are scarier that an arrest and accusations of criminal conduct. Serious criminal allegations that result in convictions come with severe penalties, especially if there are weapons involved. Ontario residents facing such circumstances will likely be exploring the defence options available to them. When Toronto police recently executed a drug warrant at a residential home, they learned of an explosive device located in the garage. With the assistance of the CBRNE team that deals with chemical, radiological, nuclear and explosive devices, the surrounding homes were evacuated before they removed the device. Officers then detonated it in a safe location.…

Two drivers walk free after a violation of rights

Drivers in Ontario who are accused of driving while intoxicated may find two recent court rulings interesting. These cases show how important it is for drivers to take note of every step that law enforcement takes during a traffic stop and while conducting tests to determine blood alcohol levels. Even the slightest deviance from prescribed procedures may ruin the case of the Crown when an impaired driving case goes to court. Reportedly, when a breath technician of the police did a breath screening of an accused drunk driver, the officer ordered the woman to get on a scale. When the driver asked…

Four Toronto teens arrested for alleged violent crimes

When law enforcement accuses individuals in Toronto of crimes, the suspects have some basic rights. One of those is the presumption of innocence until proved guilty in a court of law. Four men who were captured in connection with violent crimes that involved a shooting incident in Toronto on Dec. 31 will likely be exploring their defence options. The Youth Criminal Justice Act protects the identities of two of them who were minors of ages 16 and 17 years. According to the Toronto Police Service, three men allegedly unlawfully entered an apartment on the early morning of Dec. 31. According to the…

Failed breath test won’t guarantee an impaired driving conviction

Failing a roadside breath test is a frightening prospect. A conviction for impaired driving may mean a fine, a lost licence, and perhaps other penalties. Those are serious punishments for the average citizen. However, there have been many cases wherein failed tests did not lead to convictions. A recent example happened in Ontario when a woman's case was dismissed for a Charter violation. After failing a roadside test, the woman was taken to a police station for further processing. An officer asked her to stand on a scale so her weight could be ascertained. It was this part of the process that…
