Man turns self in after warrant issued for violent crimes

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in violent crimes on Tuesday April 18, 2017.

Without knowing the full details of an alleged crime, it can be difficult to understand what truly transpired. As an example, a case in Toronto recently came to light of a man who may simply have been a minor nuisance to a co-worker. As matters stand now, however, the police are involved and a man faces charges for violent crimes. The trouble allegedly began innocently enough back in Dec. 2014. A...

Serious criminal allegations pile up for man after gun is fired

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in violent crimes on Tuesday April 18, 2017.

Fleeing the scene of a crime, whether one is guilty or not, is never a good idea. Unfortunately, it is a natural human reaction, but the implications are not good. It is possible a Toronto man may have made his situation worse when he chose to leave the scene after a weapon was fired near a crowd. Police later arrested him, and he faces many serious criminal allegations. The incident took...

Many people have, at one time or another, acted out of character and regretted it later. Most often, the incident is soon forgotten, and the instigator moves on with his or her life. However, when the incident escalates to the point where law enforcement officers are called to intervene, it's not so easy to just walk away. A man from the easternmost part of the Greater Toronto Area has recently...

Four Toronto teens arrested for alleged violent crimes

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in violent crimes on Monday March 20, 2017.

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...

A west GTA man finds himself charged with several violent crimes after a late night argument got out of hand, and an unlucky bystander was injured.

Man convicted of murder alleges judge committed legal error

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in violent crimes on Thursday February 11, 2016.

In any criminal case there are certain procedures that must be followed. When the Crown, or the judge assigned to the case, fails to adhere to those procedures, the accused could use it as a basis to have the case thrown out, or in the case of conviction, the verdict tossed. A man who was recently convicted of murder is seeking the latter. The basis of the appeal is the...
