Criminal Charges

Fight an Assault Charge

X-Copper Lawyers

In Canada, an assault is any intentional application of force to another person, including a gesture.  If the above act is done in self-defence or in the defence of another person, the act is not an offence, so long as the degree of force used is not unreasonable. Another possible defence which may sometimes be used, is that the act was done with consent.

If you are charged with an assault, your representative may want to explore the possibility of a section 810 peace bond. A peace bond does not result in a criminal record, finding of guilt or conviction, unless you breach the terms of the peace bond.

X-Copper employs criminal defence lawyers, paralegals and former police officers. Our team of experienced legal professionals have successfully represented thousands of clients charged for a wide range of criminal offences, including assault.
