Different property offences may lead to different potential sentences, depending on the severity of the charge and the circumstances of each case. A convicted individual may face fines, probation and even imprisonment.
Retaining a criminal defence lawyer as early as possible can significantly help your case. I am Calgary defence lawyer Jack Kelly, and I have successfully defended many clients charged with a range of property offences during more than 20 years of legal practice.
I can help you with the following criminal charges involving property, among others:
The Alberta criminal justice system vigorously prosecutes property offences because of the potential links to organized crime. The Crown and the RCMP have specific teams focusing on fraudulent activity, from passing bad cheques to money laundering by means of securities fraud. The rights of suspected and accused individuals often get overlooked, opening the door for different types of criminal defences.
In certain cases, striking a deal with the prosecution may be the best course of defence. I understand it is my duty to advise you openly and immediately of any possible alternatives so we can build the best possible defence strategy.
