To determine whether you will be released or remain incarcerated pending your trial, a bail hearing is held at the Ontario Court of Justice. This is an integral part of any criminal case, because securing a release from custody ensures that you can continue to work on your case with your lawyer while being on a release, and reinforces the presumption of innocence is upheld as a constitutional principle.

Robbery is one of the most serious offences in the criminal code, and it carries the potential for life a sentence. This is because unlike theft, robbery entails the use of violence or threats of violence when taking or attempting to take property from an individual, store, office, bank, or other premises.

Robbery offences carry severe penalties, especially for repeat offences and when a weapon was involved. Therefore, it’s essential to have experienced legal representation. At Zamani Law, our lawyers have successfully defended many clients facing robbery charges. Contact us for a free consultation with one of our criminal defence lawyers in Scarborough.


Mischief charges can be laid against you if you deliberately damage property, or render it dangerous, useless, or ineffective.
