When you say you were charged in court, do you mean you were convicted? Or did you get diversion and if so was the charge eventually withdrawn?
You need to find out if you were convicted or the charges were withdrawn.
Were you found guilty and sentenced?That does not usually happen for a first offence.So you need to find that out.Do you have a criminal record?
If you were convicted and the Crown had chosen to deal with you by way of indictment (which is also rare) then this may affect you right to become a citizen.
But if the Crown chose to go by way of Summary Conviction then you would likely be OK.
So you need to find out what happened exactly before you know where you stand.I have to go to bed but I will reply back in the morning again if you still need me.
