There are several charges possible under the category of fraud and theft. Fraud is the dishonest acquisition of something that belongs to someone else. Section 380 (1) of the Criminal Code of Canada states that "Everyone who, by deceit, falsehood or other fraudulent means, defrauds the public or any person of any property, money or valuable security or any service" is guilty of fraud.
Fraud, like other white-collar criminal cases are very complex and will have experienced crown attorneys prosecuting the case. Fraud cases usually also involve the police obtaining warrants and production orders as the police investigate the case against you.
Fraud over $5,000 is considered an indictable offence with a lengthy jail time up to a maximum of fourteen years. Fraud under $5,000 is considered a hybrid offense, meaning the crown can opt for individuals being tried summarily or by indictment.
If you are suspected of fraud, it is a serious matter. Call RS Law Firm today and speak with our lawyers for a no-obligation consultation.
In Canada, young persons under the age of 18 and as young as 12 are prosecuted under the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA). The Act contains several allowances for youth who are charged under the Act that adults do not get. For instance, if a child is charged under the YCJA, the police have to provide them ample time to speak with legal counsel, parent or other adult before issuing a statement to police. The Act was created to balance the interests of young offenders, while maintaining public safety.
