Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
What do you mean by "discovery"? There is no "discovery" in criminal cases, unless you are referring to a preliminary hearing, or you are mistakenly referring to receiving disclosure on Nov 24. At 1000 Finch, if it is room 301 at 2pm, then that would mean it's your first appearance and you should get disclosure. Disclosure would very likely include the TTC video surveillance. You do not need a lawyer for your first appearance, though it may be wise so you don't have to wait a long time for your matter to be called and also so you can have a professional to assist in representing you for the case.
Hopefully that answers your question.
1. You don't need the letters on the first appearance, but if you want to show them to the Crown you can do so at a later date, such as a future pretrial date whenever that may ultimately be set for;
2. Crown has to prove that you applied some sort of force to the girl without her consent; this must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt;
3. You would have to sue her in civil court if you wish to recoup any costs;
4. If the bus driver will support what you're saying, then having him testify at court would be very useful. A written statement alone would be hearsay and likely would not be admissible in court.
Hopefully that answers your question. If so, would you kindly provide me with a positive rating so I can receive compensation for my services. Thank you.
Sorry to bother you but would you kindly provide me with a positive rating so I can receive compensation for my services. Thank you very much.
As you seem to have several questions, perhaps a phone call would be easiest to discuss them all.
A simple assault (i.e. no use of weapon and no causing serious injuries) should not make you inadmissible into the USA. That being said, entry into the USA is largely at the discretion of the US Customs officer, meaning you could enter the country 10 times without a problem, and the 11th time you get an officer who is have a bad day or doesn't like you for whatever reason and decides not to let you in.
But legally, a single conviction on simple assault is not in itself grounds for inadmissibility to the USA.
Thank you. I am from Toronto, I have quite a few matters at the 1000 Finch courthouse. There are some good Crowns there, and hopefully they will agree to a peace bond (i.e. they drop the charges if you agree to have no further contact with the alleged complainant / person who claims you pushed her)
