Yes you can.

It all depends on the circumstances, if a weapon was involved, and if there are collateral charges.

NO charge in Canada has an automatic free pass for the first offense.

It is all based on the circumstances. Add to that the indictment record, the offender will not be able to travel outside the country without significant problems.
