Summary Criminal Offences

You’ve heard it before: “You are innocent until proven guilty.” However, if you are charged with a criminal offence in Ontario, you need to prove your innocence. Shemesh Paralegal can help you with your summary criminal offences.

Summary criminal offences or summary conviction offences are offences that are discharged summarily or expeditiously, which means that the accused has no choice of court and does not have a right to a trial by jury. Although these offences are less serious than indictable offences, and thus carry a shorter prison sentence or lesser consequence, the accused must be charged within six months of committing the offence and the matter will proceed to court.
