Assault with a weapon / Assault causing bodily harm (CC 267) – Common Criminal Charges

Assault with a weapon / Assault causing bodily harm (CC 267) is a hybrid offence. Individuals convicted of assault with a weapon or causing bodily harm are usually sentenced to a fine payment, probation and, in some cases, a period of jail time or house arrest. Repeat offenders are generally given heavier sentences and are more likely to be given jail time.

A Record Suspension will remove any record of an assault conviction from an individual’s criminal history. The record of conviction will be kept separate and apart and will not be released to third parties through criminal background checks.

A criminal record for assault can mean that an individual is prevented from finding employment, doing volunteer work and being bonded. It can also make it difficult for an individual to become a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

In some cases a criminal record it can prevent them from entering Canada entirely.

A Record Suspension will remove these obstacles.

    Hello,

    Once you have been charged or fingerprinted by the police there is an active file. In order to remove all traces of the charges, fingerprints and court records you will need to proceed with a purge and file destruction. You may reach me at 1-866-242-2411 X225 to discuss or also via email : kwallis@nationalpardon.org

    Regards

    Keri
