Man turns self in after warrant issued for violent crimes

Without knowing the full details of an alleged crime, it can be difficult to understand what truly transpired. As an example, a case in Toronto recently came to light of a man who may simply have been a minor nuisance to a co-worker. As matters stand now, however, the police are involved and a man faces charges for violent crimes.

Serious criminal allegations pile up for man after gun is fired

Fleeing the scene of a crime, whether one is guilty or not, is never a good idea. Unfortunately, it is a natural human reaction, but the implications are not good. It is possible a Toronto man may have made his situation worse when he chose to leave the scene after a weapon was fired near a crowd. Police later arrested him, and he faces many serious criminal allegations.

East GTA man facing charges for violent crimes after bus incident

Many people have, at one time or another, acted out of character and regretted it later. Most often, the incident is soon forgotten, and the instigator moves on with his or her life. However, when the incident escalates to the point where law enforcement officers are called to intervene, it's not so easy to just walk away. A man from the easternmost part of the Greater Toronto Area has recently learned that after an alleged altercation on public transit led to charges for violent crimes.

Toronto man arrested for violent crimes after nightclub incident

There is something about a night out at a loud and crowded social venue that can bring out the worst in some people. Perhaps that is what happened at an east GTA nightclub recently when a fight broke out between two late night revelers. In the aftermath of the fight, a single person now faces charges for violent crimes after allegedly discharging a gun.

Four Toronto teens arrested for alleged violent crimes

When law enforcement accuses individuals in Toronto of crimes, the suspects have some basic rights. One of those is the presumption of innocence until proved guilty in a court of law. Four men who were captured in connection with violent crimes that involved a shooting incident in Toronto on Dec. 31 will likely be exploring their defence options. The Youth Criminal Justice Act protects the identities of two of them who were minors of ages 16 and 17 years.

Woman charged with slew of violent crimes after altercation

Relationships sometimes bring out the worst in people, even after they're over. When tempers flare, altercations can occur and may even turn violent. That could be what happened after an east Toronto confrontation allegedly turned ugly, and a woman found herself facing numerous charges for violent crimes.

Multiple violent crimes charges as man accused of shooting driver

When tempers flare, rash decisions often follow. Downtown Toronto was the scene of an accidental shooting this past spring, a direct result of one such decision. A west GTA man finds himself charged with several violent crimes after a late night argument got out of hand, and an unlucky bystander was injured.

Man convicted of murder alleges judge committed legal error

In any criminal case there are certain procedures that must be followed. When the Crown, or the judge assigned to the case, fails to adhere to those procedures, the accused could use it as a basis to have the case thrown out, or in the case of conviction, the verdict tossed. A man who was recently convicted of murder is seeking the latter.

Defences to murder charge vary depending on circumstances

There is no question that being accused of taking the life of another person is a serious offence. The penalties associated with a conviction for this crime could lead to the loss of liberty for the accused. People who find they are facing these charges will not automatically be convicted of the crime. A trial will be conducted during which, a defence to the charges may be offered. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the incident, it is possible that self defence could be offered as a reason. This is the approach that was recently taken in a first degree murder trial currently being considered by a jury in Ontario.

Building a defence may be difficult after long passage of time

Do you remember what you were doing in 1990? Many people probably do not and would agree that was a long time ago. This was likely the case for a 61-year-old Toronto man who was recently arrested and charged with first-degree murder. The man is accused of stabbing a 38-year-old man to death in 1990, in the course of a robbery, while the deceased worked at a gas bar.
