What happens at a bail hearing?
Generally the Crown must show the judge or the justice of peace why you shouldn’t be released into the community in many cases. However, 'reverse onus bail hearings' happen under certain circumstances and for some serious criminal offences in accordance with the rules that govern bail in the Criminal Code of Canada.
How can an experienced criminal defence lawyer help me at my Bail Hearing?
Your lawyer can present information with supporting materials as well as supporting cases at your bail hearing. An experienced criminal defence lawyer can also help you enhance the prospect of negotiating terms of your release which may not be as restrictive as what the Prosecutor is seeking. These conditions of your release are a very important consideration, as you must understand these conditions and follow them, while your case is ongoing in the court system.
