The difference between a lawful and an unlawful search is a subtle one that can often only be determined by an experienced criminal lawyer in Edmonton once all of the disclosure in your case has been received.
Being arrested or investigated for a criminal offence is intimidating and stressful, and when in that situation, understanding your rights is crucial.
Canadians have remedies if their constitutional rights (i.e. Charter rights) are infringed by the State. One such remedy is the exclusion of the evidence obtained as a result of the breach of rights.
In Canada, if you are not a Canadian Citizen, the consequences of a criminal conviction vary drastically depending on your status in Canada.
Many individuals who are charged with a criminal offence are afflicted with some type of mental illness.
In Canada, both first-degree murder as well as second-degree murder come with mandatory minimums of life imprisonment. This means that if you are convicted of either of these offences, the judge must impose a sentence of life imprisonment on you.
