We live in an age where sexual assault and domestic violence allegations are being taken more seriously than ever before.

False accusations of domestic assault are a growing trend

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Domestic Violence on Saturday January 14, 2017.

There is no question that spousal abuse is a heinous crime in Ontario. Its victims are often vulnerable and emotionally damaged by long-term mistreatment. This is why domestic assault is rightly taken seriously by law enforcement and advocates. However, the high-profile nature of the cause has also allowed it to be misused too often. When this happens, a person who is innocent may face detrimental consequences from one accusation. When...

Man sentenced to house arrest for domestic assault

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Domestic Violence on Wednesday November 02, 2016.

Many people have experienced a moment in their lives when they acted in a manner that was out of character. If a crime is alleged to have been committed during one of these moments, it may ultimately be viewed in a different light than the actions of a habitual offender. A northern Ontario man found himself in court recently, facing domestic assault charges after acting out uncharacteristically. On March 29, 2016 police responded to...

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Domestic Violence on Sunday August 21, 2016.

When a domestic incident is reported, more often than not the complainant is a female and the accused is her husband or male partner. This is not always the case, however. There are numerous cases of female-on-male domestic assault every year, though many go unreported. One case that was reported to authorities took place recently in northern Ontario. Ontario Provincial Police officers responded to a domestic dispute call on July 25,...

In our last post we wrote about the existence of a domestic violence court in the province of Ontario.

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...

Domestic violence charges should be taken seriously

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Domestic Violence on Saturday January 16, 2016.

All criminal charges have the potential to dramatically impact the life of the accused, if they are found guilty. In most cases the serious consequences do not begin until a guilty verdict is rendered. This is not the case where domestic violence is concerned, however. Even upon being accused, someone can begin to experience negative repercussions—even if the person is innocent. In most cases, when the police arrive, an accused...
