Me Marie-Joëlle Demers, criminal lawyer


Sentencing considerations are therefore very important in cases where discharge exists as a possibility. For certain types of offence, the Criminal Code does in fact allow for discharge under certain conditions.

Discharge can be considered a kind of pardon as the court decides to waive the sentence.

Discharge can be unconditional or conditional, that is, with or without conditions associated.

In the hope of getting a favourable outcome, legal arguments leading to a discharge must be rigorously presented, particularly in regard to an eventual criminal record. In this case, our experienced lawyers’ unfailing support can be called to task for getting best results and avoiding the long-term consequences of a criminal record.
