Have you been charged with an assault with a weapon? The Ontario Courts take this type of criminal offense extremely seriously.
An assault charge with a weapon falls under Section 267 of the Criminal Code of Canada and states, everyone who, in committing an assault,
(a) carries, uses, or threatens to use a weapon or an imitation thereof, is found guilty.
This criminal charge is taken much more seriously than a common assault charge due to the use or threatened use of a weapon, which can cause serious bodily harm.
The absolute first step you should take after being charged with an Assault with a Weapon is talk to a lawyer.
