>>>Does the crown ever drop criminal charges?

courtroom criminal charges

Where criminal proceedings have been initiated against you, there are two ways that the Crown Prosecutor can stop the proceedings against you:

1. The Crown Prosecutor can stay the proceedings: 

The Crown Prosecutor can halt proceedings against you by telling the clerk that a stay will be entered. This means that the Crown Prosecutor will not continue to pursue your charges. However, the Crown Prosecutor has the power to recommence the proceedings within one year of the entry of the stay by filing a notice of recommencement with the clerk.

2. The Crown Prosecutor can withdraw the information:

The Crown Prosecutor can also halt a criminal proceeding by withdrawing the Information that was laid in order to charge you with the alleged offence. If this is done prior to a plea, the Crown Prosecutor may do so without leave of the court. However, once a plea has been entered, the Crown Prosecutor must request leave of the court to withdraw the information.

Glowing Reviews From Our Clients

My career depended upon the successful resolution of my matter, and I couldn’t have been happier with the way Michael handled my case. He knew right away the best strategy to take to allow me to have my charges withdrawn, and was able to follow through as he promised, for a very reasonable cost. I would highly recommend this law firm.

S.A.

I would definitely recommend Michael Oykhman and his team. Not only were my charges dropped but the professionalism and empathy I was shown gave you confidence knowing someone was working just as hard as you would be to obtain the best possible result. For anyone looking for lawyer he is one of the best hands down.
