Canadian Criminal Lawyers - Types of Offences

Offences are set out in the The Canadian Criminal Code and are divided into two broad types: "summary" and "indictable".

Summary offences tend to be less serious ones, indictable more serious.

Canadian Criminal Lawyers - Procedure if an an offence is Alleged Complaint is Sworn.

The police swear a complaint and present it to a judge. If the judge feels the person should be made to come and answer the accusation that has been made the judge will issue either a summons, or a warrant for arrest.

Summons

A summons is usually delivered personally by a police officer. It sets out what the charge is, and when the person must appear in court to answer the charge. If the offence charged is one that can be proceeded with by indictment, the person may also be told to go to the police station for finger-printing. Failure to show up for finger-printing can lead to a warrant for arrest being issued.

Arrest

An arrest can be made by the police under the following circumstances:


• if they find someone committing an indictable offence;
• if they see someone apparently fleeing from lawful pursuit after committing a crime;
• if they believe someone is about to commit an indictable offence;
• if they believe there is a warrant out on the person;
• If they have a warrant for the arrest of a person.
