I’ve been charged and found guilty. What do I need to know?

You still have a chance to work out a more favourable sentence at a sentencing hearing. Typically, at a sentencing hearing, the crown attorney will speak first to go over the offence and its impact, and, from that, argue for a sentence. After that, you or your lawyer will have a chance to suggest and argue for a lighter sentence.

If you have questions about an upcoming sentencing hearing, call Rishi Gill at 604.899.1436. Your initial consultation with Rishi is free and includes a review of your case, possible defences and courses of action. When you call, you will speak to Rishi Gill directly (not a paralegal or assistant), so you can be assured that the counsel you receive will be timely and discrete.
