OUR APPROACH

Our Criminal Justice System is built upon one clear principle: The Presumption of Innocence, which states, “every person shall be considered innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt”. The burden of proof is on the prosecution to prove the charge beyond a reasonable doubt. Where there is reasonable doubt, the accused must be found “not guilty”.

Once you are arrested and charged with an offence, the investigating officer gathers evidence to prove your guilt. At this time, you have right to remain silent.

It is very important that you protect your rights when you are faced with a criminal charge. Rest assured that if you are charged with a criminal offence, Sack (Q.C.) and Bogle Law will give your matter the attention and care it rightfully deserves. A criminal conviction can have a negative impact on various aspects on your life, such as your ability to travel internationally, obtain gainful employment and most significantly, your freedom. As such, it is very important to get legal advice from a qualified lawyer on how to proceed.
