What Is Assault with a Weapon?
Assault with a weapon is governed by section 276(a) of the Criminal Code of Canada, and states: "Every one who, in committing an assault, (a) carries, uses or threatens to use a weapon or an imitation thereof, or (b) causes bodily harm to the complainant, is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding ten years or an offence punishable on summary conviction and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding eighteen months."
Your Criminal Lawyer will assist you in determining any relevant defences where a charge here is laid. A Criminal Lawyer is important in these types of cases, because sometimes where a person is charged with a second offence, such as assault causing bodily harm, which arises out of the same circumstances, there is a principle that only one conviction can be registered.
