Unfortunately, there are certain situations that make a detention sentence inevitable. However, you must remember that you still have rights, and we will ensure that they are respected. Our firm will guide you throughout the detention process, from the judgment to the end of your sentence.
Prison sentences are governed by the Corrections and Conditional Release Act for federal sentences, and the Correctional Services Act for provincial sentences.
In some situations, you will be required to appear before the provincial or federal Parole Board, which can cause a lot of anxiety. You may ask yourself:
- What does this hearing really mean?
- Who will be involved in this hearing?
- How much time do I have to prepare for this hearing?
