Summary Criminal Defences
A summary offence is less serious than an indictable offence, but that doesn’t mean you should take it without legal advice. Any criminal act that can be proceeded with summarily, without the right to a jury trial and/or indictment, is a summary offence, and Thomsen Paralegal Services can represent you and give you top-notch legal advice on how to proceed.
Effective Summary Defenses
There are a wide variety of Provincial offences that can include summonses. They can be received after perceived violations to the following:
- Municipal or Provincial traffic and parking laws
- Dog Owner’s Liability Act
- The Environmental Protection Act
- Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act
- Liquor License Act
- The Smoke Free Ontario Act,
- The Retail Business Holidays Act
A summons may be issued for not licensing of your dog, wrongful disposal of an environmentally dangerous substance, taking more than the legal limit of fish caught, serving alcohol to a minor, smoking tobacco in the company car, or a business being open for business on a statutory holiday.
