According to the below article, assault is the most common criminal charge in Canada.
Many of our clients who we get a Pardon for have common assault charges. Most of these charges result from domestic disputes which ends up with one of the partners calling the police. When the police arrive, they will most likely charge someone even if the partner does not want the other to get charged.
Other assault charges usually stem from fights at bars, fights with neighbours or road rage.
Oftentimes, these are usually isolated incidents, yet the person who gets charged and has a criminal record will suffer for many years beyond that single incident.
Only a Pardon, can help that person move on in their life without the burden of a criminal record hanging over their head.
