Criminal Law

What is Criminal Law?

Criminal law is concerned with individuals who commit crimes, where the prosecution includes people deciding whether the individual should be punished for their conduct or lack thereof. There are two basic kinds of offences outlined in the criminal code: summary conviction offences (minor), and non-summary offences which are indictable.

Summary Convictions Offences

Summary conviction offences are punishable by a fine no more than $5,000 and up to 6 months in jail. With indictable offences, the penalties may be divided into the following three categories:

  1. Indictable-only: Treason or murder, these can only be tried in a high court and with a jury (unless decided otherwise).
  2. Offences of absolute jurisdiction: Theft and fraud up to $5,000 and other nuisance offences.
  3. Hybrid offences: Involves most other offences that are outlined in the Criminal Code.

In Canadian Criminal Law, if there is an alleged offence the following process is involved:

  1. The police present a complaint to the judge, who will then issue a warrant for arrest.
  2. An arrest is made.
  3. The individual under arrest will appear before a judge within 24 hours to answer to the charges and discuss the possibility of bail.
  4. Depending on the plea, the court may deal with sentencing or assign it for a later date.
