The announcement underlines the firm’s commitment to upholding the rights of young people, ensuring that due process has been adhered to at every stage of criminal proceedings. Alongside an intimate knowledge of the Canadian Criminal Code, Mr. Jaksa helps to demystify and explain the complexities of criminal charges, explaining in simple terms the options available to young defendants and their guardians.
With gang violence on the rise across Canada’s major cities, there has been a parallel increase in drug arrests. Thousands of teenagers become embroiled in tribal disputes and violent crimes relating to gang operations. Accused persons between the ages of 12 and 18 fall under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act. With a detailed knowledge of this legislation, Mr. Jaksa and his team are well-placed to help young people who are facing serious criminal charges.
The firm brings expertise in arguing a young client’s diminished responsibility on the grounds of a lack of life experience, limited decision-making abilities, and prospects for rehabilitation. Depending on the severity of the charges, the Jaksa team can also negotiate extrajudicial sanctions, opening up the possibility of counselling and community service rather than a custodial sentence.
Other sentencing options for young people who are facing drug possession or trafficking charges include deferred custody and supervision, attendance orders, judicial reprimands, and intensive rehabilitative custody and supervision.
Mr. Jaksa provides expert legal counsel from an initial arrest through to pre-trial motions, bail hearings, courtroom appearances, and any appellate proceedings.
A spokesperson says, “If a youth has been charged with a criminal offence, you need an experienced criminal lawyer that understands the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA). Knowing the delicate differences in how youth matters are treated could make a vast difference to a youth’s future.”
