Bail (also called ‘judicial interim release’) is the process that allows a person charged with a criminal offence to be released from custody prior to his trial. In Canada, not every person charged with an offence is given bail. If a person has a prior history of convictions, or is charges with more serious offences, he may have to stay in custody (ie jail) until his trial. In short, being granted bail is the difference between staying in jail for a year, or more, waiting for trial, or being released from custody and continuing on with life.
For a criminal defence lawyer, conducting a bail hearing can involve as much work and preparation as preparing for trial, and the stakes are high – your very freedom is on the line. Choosing the right lawyer for your bail hearing may mean the difference between your freedom or staying in jail.
