Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, thank you for the question.
Did your daughter speak to the police about when she should or would attend for processing?
Are you in an urban center? You could call the police station and ask if there's a bail court or "wash court" going on today in that jurisdiction, so if someone is arrested or turns themself in today, could they be processed today? (That's not typical, and given that it's already noon it might be too late to take advantage of that anyway)
I'm here. Typing.
If she is arrested today, she could be held for a bail hearing or be released on her own promise to appear.
It's probably the latter, but it's possible she'll be held for a hearing. She might be looking at assault with a weapon if she is alleged to have been holding something when she hit him.
That's why I asked if she has spoken to the police about when she has to turn herself in, or whether you live in a city where there might be a weekend bail court or "wash court" it's sometimes called.
So, what did the police tell your daughter?
You don't need to freak out, what's going to happen will happen. Staying calm and gathering information is the best thing you can do for her right now, ok?
I'm here. I hope you can tell me what the police said to your daughter, or whether they just left her a message, or came by her place.
You don't need to call the police about whether there's bail court today, as it's getting late. But it would have been nice to know.
I'll be here when you reply.
