Guest speaker - Vince Clifford, Lawyer at Edelson Clifford D’Angelo LLP
Have you ever wondered what your rights are if you are stopped by a police officer? What happens if you lie to a police officer? What are your rights if you are detained? Are police officers allowed to stop and ask you for identification? Do you have to answer all their questions? Vince, a high profile criminal law lawyer, who’s represented a former Ottawa mayor, as well as, acted for serial killer Colonel Russell Williams, spoke about the accused's rights with respect to practical criminal law.
"How can you defend a criminal who you know is guilty?" Vince was asked one day. He explained that in our country you are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
