Your worst nightmare has come true. The police have stopped you and investigated you. Before you know it, you have been arrested and charged you with a criminal offence. You are probably scared, overwhelmed, and embarrassed. You are at the mercy of the police.
The single-most important thing I can tell you is that a charge is just a charge. It is not a conviction; it is not a criminal record. Just because the police believe you have committed a crime, it does not mean that you have committed a crime. It also does not mean that they can prove you have committed a crime. It is extremely important to retain an experienced criminal lawyer who can help you protect your legal interests from the earliest possible opportunity.
An experienced lawyer can help you protect yourself. Things you do and say may be used against you by the Crown Attorney to try to prove that you are guilty, even if you are not.
