Montreal Bail Hearings Lawyer
What Is A Bail Hearing?
When you’re arrested, the police may decide (based on the seriousness of the charges, your priors, etc.) to keep you detained in jail until your criminal case has been resolved in its entirety. In the event that the prosecutor does not consent to your release, a bail hearing will take place. At this hearing, the judge will determine whether the prosecutor has made the case for your detention pending trial or whether you should be released, and if so, on what conditions. Under section 11(e) of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, you have the right not to be denied bail without just cause
