How do I change my release conditions and what if I breach them?

>>>How do I change my release conditions and what if I breach them?

Once your release conditions have been set, it is difficult to change them without the consent of the Crown Prosecutor. In order to change your release conditions without the consent of the Crown Prosecutor, you will have to conduct a bail review hearing in Queen’s Bench, and demonstrate to the Court that there has been a material change in circumstances to justify amending the conditions. A criminal defence lawyer may be able to assist you in negotiating a change of release conditions with the Crown Prosecutor. If your release includes a no-contact condition with a named individual, the Crown Prosecutor will have to be satisfied that the named individual actually wants to have contact with you before that condition will be changed. Note that even if your release conditions have been amended, they will not come into effect until you attend the courthouse and sign your new release documents.

If you breached your release conditions, you will likely be charged with breach of recognizance, which is an offence under the Criminal Code. A warrant may issue for your arrest. If a warrant issues, you will have to turn yourself in at a police station to have the warrant executed, and you may or may not be released on the same conditions. Factors which will determine whether you will be re-released include the seriousness of your charges, the seriousness of your breach, and your criminal record. Although it is not common, it may be possible for one of our criminal defence lawyers to have your warrant brought into court to speak to without you having to turn yourself in.

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 He knew right away the best strategy to take to allow me to have my charges withdrawn, and was able to follow through as he promised, for a very reasonable cost.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.
