The Criminal Code
When someone is charged with an assault, it becomes a very complex situation with respect to interpreting the criminal code in relation to a specific individual’s case and circumstances. This is why it is very important that you have an experienced criminal lawyer in Brampton working with you such as Vincent Houvardas. For example, Section 256 (1) of the criminal code defines the following: 265 (1) A person commits an assault when (a) without the consent of another person, he applies force intentionally to that other person, directly or indirectly; (b) he attempts or threatens, by an act or a gesture, to apply force to another person, if he has, or causes that other person to believe on reasonable grounds that he has, present ability to effect his purpose; or (c) while openly wearing or carrying a weapon or an imitation thereof, he accosts or impedes another person or begs.
