If you have been stopped and charged by either the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) or local municipal police, it is important to understand the repercussions of a conviction as well as the potential costs and benefits of contesting your charge(s) at court. A conviction will generally result in a fine ranging anywhere from a minor fine below a hundred dollars, up to a very large fine ranging in the thousands of dollars. A conviction may also result in a suspension of your licence due to either a court ordered licence suspension or by the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario due to demerit points or on other grounds. More serious offences may also result in jail time being ordered by the court.
Our team at OTD Legal Services is here to help you understand what you’ve been charged with and what options you can choose from in protecting your interests. Navigating the court system, knowing your rights, and providing an effective defence at court can be a daunting and difficult task for the average person without training and experience in the law.
Our team has the specific knowledge and experience required in assisting defendants just like yourself in providing cost-effective legal representation at court. Our team can help you if you’ve been charged with a simple offence such as speeding, red light – fail to stop, disobey stop sign, operate motor vehicle no licence, driver fail to properly wear seatbelt, or drive with no currently valid permit. We can also help protect your rights with commercial motor vehicle charges or very serious offences such as careless driving, drive under suspension, fail to remain at the scene of a collision, operate motor vehicle without insurance, or failing to stop for a school bus.
We understand that being charged by the police can be a stressful experience, especially in cases where a collision or injuries may be involved. We also understand how that stress can then be compounded by the thought of having to attend court or having to prepare and file legal documents with court staff. For the majority of the cases that we represent defendants on, it is common that a resolution can be reached with the Prosecutor’s Office without the need for full trial. By filing for and reviewing the evidence to be used against you at trial, we can meet with the Prosecutor in advance of trial to determine the legal merits of their case.
Ideally, the best case resolution is to find a legally sufficient argument to have the charge(s) withdrawn outright at an early resolution meeting. If the charge(s) cannot be withdrawn, then we can negotiate on your behalf to determine if an acceptable plea deal can be reached to reduce the number of charges, the nature of the charges, or the penalties associated with the charges. We can then review with you the merits of the plea deal in regards to the possible benefits and risks of trial for you to make an educated decision on how you wish to proceed. Should your interests be best served by proceeding to trial, you will have the benefit of a licenced paralegal arguing in the courtroom on your behalf and may never have to speak before the court yourself.
