Drug trafficking charges laid after canine assisted bust

Dogs are frequently referred to as man's best friend. For one man, one particular dog may have caused him a legal nightmare. An eastern Ontario man finds himself facing allegations of drug trafficking after a police canine unit was used to search his vehicle.

Non-profit worker accused of sexual assault

As is seen time and again, individuals who work with others on a level which may be deemed intimate, whether physically or emotionally, are sometimes subjected to accusations of inappropriate behaviour. While in some cases the claims are valid, in others it comes out that actions are misinterpreted, or sometimes the allegations are utter fabrications. A man working just north of Toronto at a counselling service now finds himself facing charges of sexual assault, and an uncertain future.

Court rules suspicion of impaired driving grounds for breath test

There are many instances in which a police officer must rely on his or her instincts. However, there are limits to what an officer may demand of a citizen, regardless of what those instincts may be saying. In a recent court case, an Ontario man argued his rights were violated when an officer ordered him to take a breath test, despite an absence of any visible signs of impaired driving.

Former Hamiltonian faces sexual assault charges from 70s

7-year-old evidence overturns sexual assault conviction

There are many examples in the annals of law of a person's past coming back to haunt him or her. There are occasions, however, when old evidence can change an outcome for the better.

Driveway meeting results in drug trafficking charges for 2 men

Sometimes being in the wrong place at the wrong time can make a bad situation even worse. Behaviour that seems suspicious may be enough for police to come checking on a person's activities, even if those activities were believed to have been conducted in private. Two men from southwest of Toronto were arrested under suspicion of drug trafficking after a passer-by phoned in a report to police.

Man sentenced to house arrest for domestic assault

Many people have experienced a moment in their lives when they acted in a manner that was out of character. If a crime is alleged to have been committed during one of these moments, it may ultimately be viewed in a different light than the actions of a habitual offender. A northern Ontario man found himself in court recently, facing domestic assault charges after acting out uncharacteristically.
