How is Murder Classified in the Ontario Criminal Code?

When it comes to murder or homicide charges in Ontario, culpability is measured by intent. The penalties will vary based on the degree of murder in which the defendant is accused. There are two different classifications of murder and two different classifications of homicide based on responsibility and intent.

Your initial charges will fall into one of these classifications depending on the prosecution/the Crown's case and the factors outlined above. Depending on the specifics of your case, your skilled criminal defence lawyer might be able to reclassify your case into a different category. This reclassification can potentially lessen the severity of the penalties you face. 

For more insight into the potential penalties and to start building an effective defence, contact the Karrass Law team and book your consultation.
