Practice Areas: Criminal Harassment

Criminal harassment is also known as stalking. It includes repeatedly following a person or somebody known to them from place to place, repeatedly communicating with them either directly or indirectly, threatening the person’s home or work, or threatening that person or a member of their family.

The penalties for being found guilty of criminal harassment can be severe. While sometimes a less serious summary conviction offence for more minor incidents, it can also be found to be an indictable offence, with potential prison time of up to ten years.

There is a common misconception that the police will provide all of their evidence when charges are brought. This is completely false. You need a fierce advocate who will push hard on the prosecutors to obtain every piece of evidence they have (or don’t have) and ensure that your case is presented in a fair and balanced manner.
