Assault/Domestic Assault Defence Lawyer Vaughan ON

Vaughan Law Firm

Canadian law defines the criminal offence of assault as any act where one person applies, or threatens to apply force to another individual without their consent. There are different types of assault charges depending on the amount of force used, injuries sustained by the victim and if a weapon was involved, as well as if the assault was committed as part of another criminal offence.

Even the slightest force used against another without their consent can be considered assault. For example, you slap the face or hands of another person during an argument. Even though the injuries might only leave a red mark, force was used without their consent. As a result you could face assault if they file charges against you.
