In Toronto, many things can be considered an assault offence that would lead to a criminal case. Some of the following include:
- • Assault with a weapon or intend to cause bodily harm.
- • Aggravated Assault
- • Domestic Assault
- • Harassment
- • Threatening Bodily Harm
- • Threatening Death
- • Domestic Abuse
Sexual harassment often involves discriminatory comments and behaviour or unwanted touching that never goes so far as sexual intercourse. While it is not considered as serious as a sexual assault charge, sexual harassment is just as consequential because it can take place in a professional workspace or area where such behavior should not be expected.
A 2014 poll has shown that around 43% of women in the workplace reported cases of sexual harassment and were more than twice as likely to experience it than men. Because of changes in attitudes and regulations, more women are speaking out against sexual harassment and providing meaningful dialogue to enact serious change. Moreover, sexual harassers are now more subject to both public and private scrutiny if they have sexually harassed someone.
With a conditional discharge, an individual will remain on probation with certain conditions for a designated period of time. Additionally, the discharge will come off the individual’s record after three years.
If you have been granted an ‘Absolute Discharge’, you will be released with no probation or conditions, and the discharge will only remain on your record for one year. If you have been convicted of an offence that was particularly serious, such as aggravated assault with a weapon, you are unlikely to be eligible to receive either a conditional or absolute charge.
As an experienced criminal defence lawyer, Mr. Semyonov will gather valuable evidence to create a reasonable doubt about the charges filed against you, and put you in a position to grant you the most favourable outcome for your circumstances.
