david chow has successfully defended notorious home invasion cases.
Home invasion is one of the most serious violent crimes recognized in our criminal law. The distinction between a home invasion and an ordinary break and enter is that a home invasion has an element of violence. In Canada, break and enter is considered to be a serious invasion of the privacy interests of citizens who are entitled to exist within the security of their own home sanctuary. If the offence involves violence, and is thus a home invasion, the Alberta Court of Appeal has established 8 years in a Federal Penitentiary as the starting point sentence.
With this in mind, it is critical that you successfully defend any break and enter or home invasion allegation.
