Everyone charged with a criminal offence has the right to speak to bail, or what is termed “judicial interim release.”In Alberta, there is a system in place whereby an accused person is brought before a Justice of the Peace to speak to bail within 24 hours of being charged. Many times a person will be detained at a police station waiting to be brought before the Justice of the Peace to speak to bail. This is often a very stressful and difficult time.
It is highly advisable to hire legal counsel immediately upon arrest so that counsel may assist the accused with speaking to the Justice of the Peace to ensure bail is granted.
Our firm has significant experience conducting bail hearings for all types of charges, especially drug related charges.
Even in a situation where the police are willing to release an accused, it is often advisable to have legal counsel negotiate reasonable and more favourable bail conditions.
