Charges that arise from possession or trafficking in controlled substances (drugs) are dealt with under the Controlled Drug and Substances Act. While not brought under the Criminal Code, these charges are criminal in nature and carry criminal penalties upon conviction. These charges are serious, and the consequences upon conviction can be equally serious.
The outcome of these charges often turns on whether an individual’s rights under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms have been respected by the state in their investigation. The lawyers at Sprake & Co. have a comprehensive understanding of the interests protected under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and extensive experience advocating for their clients’ rights at various levels of court. We advocate vigorously and tirelessly to ensure that our clients’ rights are upheld and respected to the full extent of the law.
At Sprake & Co., our lawyers combine their years of litigation experience to secure desirable outcomes for drug charges both inside and outside the courtroom.
