The lawyers at Cooper, Sandler, Shime & Bergman LLP have experience representing clients facing a variety of weapons offences, including under the Criminal Code and other federal and regulatory statutes. A criminal conviction for a weapons-related offence can have serious consequences, including mandatory minimum jail sentences. A finding of guilt or conviction can also negatively affect an individual’s ability to travel to the United States in the future.
Often, the defence of these types of charges can include an application under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms for the exclusion of evidence due to violations by police and other state actors of an individual’s rights. Our team is very familiar with these applications and has the tools necessary to fight these types of charges.
