Traveling after a criminal charge

My friend was charged with a criminal offence and released to appear in court in December. He has had a trip booked to Cancun for awhile, will he still be able to travel?

Depending on the seriousness of your offense and the existing workload of the court in which your case will be tried, your criminal trial may not begin for months or years after your arraignment date.

If your presiding judge deems you to be a flight risk, he or she will impose travel restrictions as a condition of your bail. These may vary from case to case, ranging from full house arrest in extreme instances to relatively lenient restrictions on international travel in others. Contact us.

Feel free to get in touch if there are any specifics that you would like to discuss. Our practice areas include criminal, human rights laws and landlord and tenant board issues. You can call and text me at 647-360-7182.
