The Criminal Code of Canada defines assault as any form of physical contact with another person who does not consent to the application of that force. Most often we see assault charges laid for the following:

  •     Pushing and shoving
  •     Punching
  •     Kicking
  •     Slapping

Learn more about how our Edmonton criminal defence lawyers can defend you against any of these assault charges.

The categories of assault under the Criminal Code are:
  •  Assault (sometimes referred to as regular or simple assault)
  • Assault with a weapon
  • Assault causing bodily harm
  • Aggravated assault

Sexual Assault

The Criminal Code broadly defines sexual assault as any type of non-consensual sexual activity. This includes:

  •     Fondling
  •     Unwanted touching
  •     Kissing
  •     Sexual intercourse without consent (often referred to as ‘rape’)
  •    Child sexual interference (often referred to as ‘statutory rape’)

Our team understands how damaging a sexual assault charge can be to your reputation, and importantly understands the significant consequences associated with a conviction arising from this type of allegation.

Impaired Driving

With an impaired driving charge, one mistake can follow you for the rest of your life – if you don’t have the right criminal defence lawyer representing you. From a hefty fine to a licence suspension, a lifelong criminal record and even jail time, RG Defence can help you avoid the worst-case scenario.

Learn more about our approach to impaired driving charges.

Property Offences

Property offences include charges that are typically considered ‘minor’, such as theft, vandalism and damage to property. These crimes are however increasing in frequency and courts are punishing offenders more severely than ever. Conviction for a ‘minor’ property offence can lead to punishment including fines, probation and in some cases imprisonment.
