Defending Against Forcible Confinement Charges

Many individuals charged with sexual assault or domestic assault find themselves also charged with the crime of forcible confinement. This crime states that it is illegal to force another person to remain in one location through the use of threats, coercion or physical actions.Similar to kidnapping, a conviction for forcible confinement carries serious penalties. You could face up to 10 years in prison. An experienced lawyer, however, can help you build a sophisticated, detailed defence against your charges.Our Toronto forcible confinement lawyers at Neuberger & Partners LLP have experience representing the rights of clients in cases involving forcible confinement. We take a careful look at the circumstances involved in the case and the dynamics of the two parties. We analyze carefully whether the party’s liberty was indeed restricted or if he or she was there willingly. We will pull in experts to help us understand the psychological and objective components involved in the charges. Our lawyers will take all steps necessary to protect your rights.


Comprehensive Approach to Cases Involving Forcible Confinement

We have successfully defended clients in all manners of cases involving sexual assault and domestic violence, including forcible confinement.* Our success rate stems from the comprehensive approach we take to defend each client. We perform an in-depth investigation of the police file, seek to undermine the credibility of the complainant, and employ private investigators and forensic experts to build each client’s defence.

In addition to the work our lawyers perform behind the scenes, we also spend a great deal of time with our clients. We carefully prepare each client and witness for trial. We run mock examinations and cross-examinations. We ask hard questions and analyze every detail. For this reason, many of our forcible confinement cases come as referrals from past clients and other lawyers.
