UNDER THE LAW.
There are three different kinds of offences.
Indictable offences are serious offences that include theft over $5,000, break, aggravated sexual assault and murder. Maximum penalties for indictable offences vary and include life in prison. Some indictable offences have minimum penalties.
Summary offences are less serious offences.
Hybrid offences – These are offences that can be dealt with as either summary or indictable. Crown counsel decides how the offence will be handled.
