If someone close to you has been arrested and is being held, contact us quickly so we can help you.
It is essential to act immediately if someone close to you is arrested.
When a person is brought into the courthouse, crown prosecutors have two options: they either release the person or oppose their release.
When our clients contact us in a timely manner, it allows us to speak to the prosecution to arrange for a release. In the event that the prosecution refuses to release the accused, we then have to proceed with a release investigation.
What is a release investigation?
As part of a release investigation, the judge will decide whether or not the accused should remain in custody until the end of his trial. Should there be a release, what will the conditions be?
What can you do for a loved one?
Communication and collaboration with your loved one’s lawyer is key when you are facing such a situation. Praparing for this process is crucial as it will determine your loved one’s freedom. You may therefore have to provide:
• A bond (amount of money that can be deposited in court to ensure that the conditions are met)
• A new address of residence
It may also be recommended to consult a therapist.
Contacting us in a timely manner can make all the difference in your loved one’s life. Please allow us to help you and make things right.
