How can I get my voyeurism charges dropped?

>>>How can I get my voyeurism charges dropped?

If you have been charged with voyeurism and this is your first offence, we may be able to resolve your matter through a diversion program that will lead to the charges against you being withdrawn. Specifically, if this is your first offence or if you do not have an extensive criminal record, we may be able to negotiate with the Crown Prosecutor and advocate for your placement in a diversion program.

A common way of diverting voyeurism charges is through mental health diversion programs. Mental health diversion programs were established in recognition of the fact that sometimes there are underlying mental health issues that led an accused to commit a particular offence. Rather than criminalizing that individual, mental health diversion will require that you complete a program designed to treat your mental health issues and rehabilitate you as an offender. Once you have completed the program, the charges against you will be withdrawn and you will be able to avoid a criminal record.

Another way of resolving your matter in a manner that will end with your charges being withdrawn is by signing a peace bond. If the Crown consents to resolving your charges with a peace bond, you will need to comply with a set of conditions stipulated by the court, usually for the period of one year. However, once the peace bond is signed, the charges against you are withdrawn and you will be able to avoid a criminal record.

Avoid a Criminal Record with a Discharge:

Alternatively, if you are not a suitable candidate for diversion or a peace bond, we can also negotiate with the Crown Prosecutor and try to persuade them to join us in an application for an absolute or conditional discharge. A conditional discharge will require that you plead guilty to the offence, and will require that you comply with conditions set by the court for a certain period of time. However, if you do not violate those conditions, you will not receive a criminal conviction despite the fact that you have pled guilty to the offence. If you receive an absolute discharge, you will be able to avoid a criminal conviction without having to comply with any conditions whatsoever. Unlike a conditional discharge, you will be immediately and absolutely discharged of your offence.
If you have been charged with voyeurism, contact one of our criminal defence lawyers as soon as possible. We have dealt with a large number of voyeurism charges, and have the knowledge and experience needed to ensure that you avoid a criminal record where possible.

Disclaimer: All results of cases handled by the lawyer/firm are not provided. The results provided are not necessarily representative of results obtained by the lawyer/firm or of the experience of all clients or others with the lawyer/firm. Every case is different, and each client’s case must be evaluated and handled on its own merits.

All our 30-60 minute free consultations are conducted with one of our Criminal Defence Lawyers and include the following steps:

  1. Gathering of some personal information about you, such as your level of education, occupation, and citizenship status. This information can be crucial for building your defence and seeking a resolution with the Crown Prosecutor;
  2. Careful review of all documents you received from the police. We will explain what each document is, and what you can expect from and need to do for all upcoming appearances;
  3. Critical review of your recollection of events, and any supporting materials you choose to bring with you. This step helps us identify possible defences and avenues for further investigation; and
  4. Discussion of the court process, our fee structure, and what we can do to help.

Beyond these steps, we would be happy to tell you more about us, and answer any questions you may have. If you chose to retain us to help you, we will immediately provide an overview of what steps we plan to take next, and suggestions as to what you should do to improve your chances of a successful outcome.

For the free initial consultation to be as productive as possible, you should bring (or email in advance) the following materials:

  • A written statement (preferably typed) outlining your version of events;
  • All documents that you have been given by the court or by the police;
  • Any disclosure you have received;
  • Photo ID; and
  • Any supporting documents, such as photographs, emails, texts, phone records, medical records, receipts, etc.

Ideally, you will have prepared a copy of these materials for us to keep, but if not, we can always photocopy them during the consultation.

We offer flexible payment options and structures designed to meet our clients’ individual needs. Our lawyers accept all major credit cards, bank drafts, money orders, email money transfers (e-transfers) and, of course, cash.

If you decide to retain us after the free initial consultation, all we need is a retainer (down payment) to get started. The rest of the fee payments for the case can be spaced out over time. We can set you up on a monthly or bi-monthly payment plan, and process payments over the telephone or by email to make it easy for you.

The cost of a criminal defence lawyer will depend on several factors, including:

  1. how complex your case is,
  2. how serious the charges are, and
  3. how experienced the Criminal Defence lawyer is.

The fees of a competent Criminal Defence Lawyer will typically range into the thousands of dollars. The good news is that only a fraction of that amount is due initially. We offer flexible payment schedules so thefees can be paid in monthly installments.

Additionally, we offer flat rate fees, with no hidden costs. It is our standard practice to review all the costs during the free initial consultation. This means you will know exactly what our services cost at the outset and can make an informed decision about how to proceed.
