Ontario Threatening Death or Bodily Harm Lawyers
People are often caught by surprise when they find themselves facing criminal charges of harassment or threats. They do not understand how simply saying something can result in a criminal charge. If it leads to a conviction, it can come with serious consequences, including incarceration.
As one of the largest and most experienced criminal law firms in Canada, Hicks Adams has the strength and resources necessary to defend against allegations of criminal threats or harassment. We will stand up for your rights.
What Constitutes Harassment and Threats?
Harassment can take many forms. Repeated phone calls or e-mails can be considered harassment. Waiting for someone outside of their home or workplace, or simply following them around, can be considered stalking and is also a form of harassment.
Threats can include outright threats to cause another person harm, or statements that imply the possibility of violence.
Not Just Domestic Assault
Charges of criminal threats or harassment often accompany charges of domestic assault. These charges often involve husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends and others in romantic or domestic relationships. However, that is not always the case. People in bars may threaten each other, as may people in business relationships. Regardless of context, the potential consequences are serious. We defend against them. An acquittal is our primary objective.
