Order in the court, eh!

have you ever been in a courtroom? because this post is about the Canadian courtroom and Justice system. You always have to go through a metal detector before you can go in the courtroom. And you have to go in through the right door. I don’t know why. There is a Canadian flag and a Canadian emblem in the courtroom. You are innocent until proven guilty.  Heres three things that make things fair in the court.

1 Your arch ememy is not allowed to be on the jury or someone that knows you.

2 You have to take a oath so that you don’t lie.

3 You get to have a lawyer who tells your side of the story.

The judge is the person who listens carefully to what people are saying and decides if the person is guilty or not.

If the accused is in jail at the time of the court the court officer will bring the accused in from jail.

The crown prosecuter has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty.

If your accused of something the defense lawyer will tell your side of the story.

The court recorder will type in what is being said on a computer so it can be read back later on.

You also have lots of rights and freedoms. You have the right to remain silent and you have the right to not remain silent. You have the right to hire a lawyer and you have the right to not hire a lawyer. You have the right to tell the truth but you don’t have the right to not tell the truth. In some cases there isn’t a jury and there is only a judge. And for all you scammers trying to get out of being sued, here’ a good tip – just don’t do anything bad in the first place!
