Firearm and Weapons Offences
Experience prosecuting drug offences means that we are also intimately acquainted with firearms and weapons offences which often accompany charges involving drugs or violence although they are also often charged on their own. Almost any item can be regarded as a weapon if it fits the definition of a weapon as defined by the Criminal Code of Canada. Use or possession of a weapon can be regarded as an aggravating feature in any given case. Firearms offences are typically regarded as very serious in Canada and can result in significant sentences. We have extensive experience dealing with firearms and weapons charges including challenging firearms experts called by Crown to prove their case.
