Arrests and Bail Hearings

Arrests and Bail HearingsBail hearings are a critical part of the criminal process. Sitar & Milczarek takes great pride in our success rate at bail hearings – with our assistance, the vast majority of our clients achieve bail and are out of custody while they await their trial dates.

If the police have been in contact with you and suspect you are involved in an offence or if you have a warrant for your arrest, do not wait, call now. We will ensure you are prepared to have a quick bail hearing and that you are prepared for your police interrogation. We can also negotiate a more convenient time for you to turn yourself in.

It is critical that individuals arrested by the police get in contact with a criminal defence lawyer as soon as possible so that they can receive legal advice and, in particular, advice about their bail hearing. Trial dates are often not scheduled for many months and it is of the utmost importance that individuals await their trial in the community and not in a correctional institution.

If someone you know is currently in custody, please contact our office to discuss a bail hearing with one of our lawyers. For a reasonable fee, one of our lawyers can attend and assist this individual in applying for release from custody.

Some examples where our lawyers have successfully obtained bail for clients in particularly difficult cases include:

  • R. v. H.B. – achieved bail for an individual charged with kidnapping, robbery and various weapons offences.
  • R. v. M.B. – achieved bail for an individual charged with fraud offences worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
  • R. v. N.R. – achieved bail for an individual with a prior record for numerous criminal offences, including failures to attend court and failures to comply with prior orders of recognizance, who was presently charged with a commercial armed robbery.
  • R. v. T.S. – achieved bail pending appeal for an individual convicted of numerous counts of historical sexual assault.
  • U.S.A. v. J.B. – achieved bail pending appeal for an individual sought for extradition to the United States on drug trafficking charges.
  • U.S.A. v. L.O. – achieved bail for an individual sought for extradition to the United States on drug trafficking charges.
