11 men arrested in Ontario drug trafficking sting

Ontario police officers have been cracking down on alleged gang activity in the Greater Toronto Area. Concerned with drug trafficking and other criminal activities, police officers have arrested 11 residents of York Region. These men were caught up in a sting in which police across Ontario laid 485 charges on 90 men and women.

New evidence presented in Toronto police sexual assault trial

Sexual assault trials are high-stakes affairs for those on both sides of the allegation. These cases are notoriously complex, especially when substance use is involved. This week, the defence for Toronto police officers accused of sexual assault produced video evidence that raised questions for jurors and the general public alike.

Ontario truck driver charged with impaired driving

A truck driver was taken into custody following an incident near Blind River, according to provincial authorities. Ontario Provincial Police arrested the 56-year-old man on suspicion of impaired driving on the night of June 12. The driver was to appear for his first court appearance in Blind River on July 13. 

Teacher facing multiple sexual assault accusations from students

To work in a profession that requires one to be in a position of trust can be both a blessing and a curse. The public generally holds such people in high regard; doctors, police officers, teachers and others have respect in their communities. They are also held to a higher standard than most other professionals. When allegations of misconduct circulate, public reaction can be swift and strong, even before a conviction. An Ontario teacher facing charges of sexual assault likely knows all this first hand.

Man charged with impaired driving after strange and fatal crash

Sometimes what begins as simply a poor decision can spiral out of control and turn into something far worse. Recently, a very peculiar accident in the west end of Toronto turned a simple case of alleged impaired driving into a tragedy. The driver now faces several charges, including one for manslaughter.

2 in Toronto facing serious penalties for drug, weapon charges

If one has never been through it before, being arrested for suspected drug possession can be a frightening experience. A suspect's world is turned upside down in a matter of minutes. It may be unclear what one's rights are or what should be done next. Perhaps the young man taken into custody by police in Toronto recently had similar thoughts. What he knows is that he now faces potentially serious penalties for an array of drug charges.

Toronto driver hits pedestrians, suspected of impaired driving

A lapse in judgment can happen to anyone, and likely has happened to nearly everyone at some point. When that lapse allegedly results in a traffic accident, and people are hurt, a person may find him or herself in serious trouble with the law. A Toronto driver suspected of impaired driving is in that situation now, a situation that may be familiar to others.

Toronto Uber driver accused of sexual assault by young passenger

The dynamic of a taxi is a unique one: one driver transporting perhaps only one passenger, a complete stranger, to another destination in the driver's car. It is impossible for anyone other than the occupants of the vehicle to know exactly what transpires through the duration of the trip. An accusation of criminal wrongdoing may be merely a case of "he said, she said" and yet can cause a major legal problem for the accused individual. A Toronto Uber driver is wrestling with that very problem after his arrest for sexual assault.

More Toronto marijuana dispensary workers facing criminal charges

July 1, 2018 cannot come fast enough for cannabis industry workers in Ontario. That's the projected date for the legalization of marijuana in this country. Until that day comes, however, possession and distribution of marijuana remains illegal, except for licensed businesses and individuals. There is a certain amount of legal grey area where pot is concerned, but that has not stopped the continual arrests and pressing of criminal charges against dispensary owners and staff.
