Dozens of criminal charges laid after seizure of guns and drugs

When it comes to guns and drugs, the law seldom treads lightly. Any men or women facing criminal charges for committing crimes in this arena will likely have the fight of their lives on their hands when they go to trial. That will no doubt be the case for a group of young adults recently arrested in Toronto.

Man faces drinking and driving charges after collision

A series of close calls and poor decisions can sometimes seem worse than it really is. However, when one of those decisions was to allegedly engage in drinking and driving, it throws everything else into a very poor light. A man faces multiple charges after an early morning incident, although no one was hurt and only his own vehicle was damaged.

Fire chief facing sexual assault charges relieved of duty

Life as a leader in the public service sector can be filled with more pressure than most people will ever know. Despite that, many choose to pursue such a career for the opportunity to help their community in the best way they can. To suddenly have all that taken away amid allegations of serious wrongdoing would be highly traumatic. No one knows this better than an Ontario fire chief recently removed from duty after allegations of sexual assault involving minors came to light.

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.

Can mitigating factors reduce the penalties for drug crimes?

It seems that prescription drug crimes are becoming more frequent, at least based on media coverage. In a recent example, a 35-year-old pharmacy employee in the Greater Toronto Area was arrested on suspicion of prescription drug theft. Over a five-month-period, roughly $40,000 of prescription drugs went missing.

False accusations of domestic assault are a growing trend

There is no question that spousal abuse is a heinous crime in Ontario. Its victims are often vulnerable and emotionally damaged by long-term mistreatment. This is why domestic assault is rightly taken seriously by law enforcement and advocates. However, the high-profile nature of the cause has also allowed it to be misused too often. When this happens, a person who is innocent may face detrimental consequences from one accusation.

Man charged with impaired driving

A man accused of crashing into a Toronto police cruiser on the evening of Jan. 7 is in custody, according to authorities. Toronto police arrested the man in Scarborough and have charged him with impaired driving. At the moment, he also faces a variety of minor traffic infractions as well. No court date has been publicly announced by police at this time. 

Single-car crash results in impaired driving charge and more

Young drivers are held to especially high standards in Ontario for their own safety, and for the safety of others. A young man from east of Toronto was recently reminded how high those standards actually are. He was able to walk away from an accident without an injury, but not without an impaired driving charge.

Lost wallet leads to criminal charges against Toronto cop

Sometimes the misfortune of a moment can cause a multitude of troubles. In a recent example in the news, a simple lost wallet was all it took to land a Toronto police officer in the middle of a drug possession controversy. The veteran cop now faces criminal charges after a discovery was allegedly made in his absence.
