Assault With a Weapon
The crime of Assault with a Weapon involves the application 
or threatened application of force against another person where a weapon is used as a tool applying the force.

The ‘weapon’ can be a traditional weapon, such as a gun, baseball bat, or knife. However, any object used during an assault will be considered a weapon. There are precedents for persons being charged with this offense for threatening or striking other persons with things like snowballs, frozen turkeys, popsicles, loaves of French bread, or even water.


Assault with a Weapon is a very broad criminal category. "Begging" for money while holding a knife or a baseball bat, for example, is considered an assault.


Even the threat of using a weapon is an offence potentially punishable by imprisonment.

Penalties for an Assault with a Weapon

If you are convicted of Assault with a Weapon, your permanent criminal record will show that you have been convicted of a violent crime.  The maximum penalty you will face is a 10-year jail term.


In addition, you face the possibility of fines, probation, and other problems associated with having a violent criminal record, such as firearm bans, employment challenges, and international travel restrictions.

We humanize you in the eyes of the Crown Prosecutor

When a Crown Prosecutor receives your case from the police all they see is your name, a case number, your charge(s), and the details of your alleged crime. That’s it. 


Our proprietary approach in dealing with the Crown Prosecutors on your behalf is to expand their vision of you. To help them see you as a ‘person’ — a father, son, brother, mother, daughter, sister and so on. We ensure they are aware of hardships you’ve endured in life, your goals, your ambitions. We want them to understand the life pressures on you that may have been a factor when the alleged assault occurred. And through proposed diversion programs, we want them to understand how you are dealing with this situation in a way that is most favorable to ensure it never happens again.


Having ‘humanized’ you in the eyes of the Crown Prosecutor, the next step is to negotiate to have your assault charges reduced, dropped completely, or withdrawn as a result of proposed diversion programs, and resolved with small fines, community service, or a peace bond.


However, if we have to go to court to fight for you, we will aggressively defend you, fight for your rights, and  strive to have all charges against you withdrawn.
