Disclosure of evidence is the first step in building a strong defence in your criminal case

Disclosure of the Crown’s evidence is your constitutional right

As a criminal defendant your next appearance, after being released by police or from jail following a bail hearing, will be in appointment court. Here your criminal defence lawyer will seek disclosure of all relevant evidence the Crown possesses in your case. It is your constitutional right to have disclosure of this evidence. Evidence is released as part of a disclosure package, and can take many forms including: police notes, crime scene pictures, witness statements, forensic evidence, surveillance video, and recordings of 911 calls. Hearing the evidence against you in a criminal case can be distressing and overwhelming. Now is a time you can benefit from the counsel of a seasoned criminal lawyer.
