Another way NOT try to beat a Fail to Remain Charge – by Defending Yourself

If you decide to fight the charge yourself, but have no legal training or experience, you significantly reduce your chances of winning your case, no matter how righteous your case is and how innocent you believe yourself to be.


Because you will be up against experienced crown prosecutors who could care less about the righteousness of your case, have little time for people like you who don’t understand court rules and procedures, and have no reason to help you in any way, manner, or form, because their only goal is to convict you.

You can get Lost in the  Legal Maze

Every step of the way you will be struggling to understand how to move your case through the arcane and complex stages of the legal system. You will have no experience challenging a police officer’s notes or version of events, you won’t even know if the officer filed the wrong charge against you or has made some procedural error that could have your case tossed out.

Lost Charter Protections
And you will likely not understand if and when or even how your Charter rights may have been violated, thereby self-denying yourself the opportunity to have a very winnable case thrown out.


Finally, the police and prosecution must prove to the court the identity of the person charged with Fail to Remain. So, when you represent yourself, all a police officer or witness for the prosecution has to do is point you out when asked to identify the person who was involved in the fail to remain incident in question. By trying to defend the case yourself, you may unknowingly be assisting the prosecution’s efforts to convict you! Remember, we go to court for you, so you’re never put in this position.
