This refers to the police, the prosecutor and lastly the court. Depending on the severity of the offence, each of these parties has the power to grant a bail application.

Driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drunk driving is a common reality in the daily lives of many individuals. There is no excuse for drunk driving, however, we believe that our clients have the right to the protection of their interests and well-being.

Being charged with the possession of drugs, either for personal use or for the intent to sell (distribute) is a serious criminal offence and is punishable by the law. Our criminal defence attorneys will determine exactly what offences apply to your case should you wish to plead not guilty.

A multitude of aspects surround criminal cases and specifically cases involving offences against a person. Commonly these cases include offences such as assault, assault GBH, criminal negligence, false imprisonment, kidnapping, robbery, sexual assault and rape.

The criminal offence of attempted murder will be committed even though the actual murder (killing) did not occur and the defendant thus failed to complete the crime. Elements of attempted murder include: 1) A deliberate or reckless behaviour with disregard for human life. 2) The intention to actually kill someone. 3) Substantial evidence pointing in the direction that considerable steps were taken to commit murder.

Murder falls part of a larger scope of criminal offences. Specifically, homicide relates to intentional killings, such as murder, and non-intentional killings, such as manslaughter. Within murder, two degrees are evident: First-degree murder & second-degree murder. With manslaughter, two degrees occur: Voluntary manslaughter & involuntary manslaughter.
