New evidence presented in Toronto police sexual assault trial

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Tuesday June 27, 2017.

Sexual assault trials are high-stakes affairs for those on both sides of the allegation. These cases are notoriously complex, especially when substance use is involved. This week, the defence for Toronto police officers accused of sexual assault produced video evidence that raised questions for jurors and the general public alike. During closing arguments, the defence showed a video of an intoxicated man being led into a hotel by his friend. The man,...

Teacher facing multiple sexual assault accusations from students

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Sunday June 11, 2017.

To work in a profession that requires one to be in a position of trust can be both a blessing and a curse. The public generally holds such people in high regard; doctors, police officers, teachers and others have respect in their communities. They are also held to a higher standard than most other professionals. When allegations of misconduct circulate, public reaction can be swift and strong, even before a conviction....

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drunk Driving on Sunday June 11, 2017.

Sometimes what begins as simply a poor decision can spiral out of control and turn into something far worse. Recently, a very peculiar accident in the west end of Toronto turned a simple case of alleged impaired driving into a tragedy. The driver now faces several charges, including one for manslaughter. The accident happened June 7, just before 5 a.m. An SUV heading north on Black Creek Drive apparently made a left...

2 in Toronto facing serious penalties for drug, weapon charges

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in drug charges on Thursday June 08, 2017.

If one has never been through it before, being arrested for suspected drug possession can be a frightening experience. A suspect's world is turned upside down in a matter of minutes. It may be unclear what one's rights are or what should be done next. Perhaps the young man taken into custody by police in Toronto recently had similar thoughts. What he knows is that he now faces potentially serious...

Toronto driver hits pedestrians, suspected of impaired driving

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drunk Driving on Thursday June 08, 2017.

A lapse in judgment can happen to anyone, and likely has happened to nearly everyone at some point. When that lapse allegedly results in a traffic accident, and people are hurt, a person may find him or herself in serious trouble with the law. A Toronto driver suspected of impaired driving is in that situation now, a situation that may be familiar to others. The accident happened on June 3, at around...

Toronto Uber driver accused of sexual assault by young passenger

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Thursday June 01, 2017.

The dynamic of a taxi is a unique one: one driver transporting perhaps only one passenger, a complete stranger, to another destination in the driver's car. It is impossible for anyone other than the occupants of the vehicle to know exactly what transpires through the duration of the trip. An accusation of criminal wrongdoing may be merely a case of "he said, she said" and yet can cause a major...

More Toronto marijuana dispensary workers facing criminal charges

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in drug charges on Thursday June 01, 2017.

July 1, 2018 cannot come fast enough for cannabis industry workers in Ontario. That's the projected date for the legalization of marijuana in this country. Until that day comes, however, possession and distribution of marijuana remains illegal, except for licensed businesses and individuals. There is a certain amount of legal grey area where pot is concerned, but that has not stopped the continual arrests and pressing of criminal charges against dispensary owners and...
