Summary Conviction offences

Summary conviction offences are the less serious criminal offences. With some exceptions, the maximum penalty for the accused person convicted of a summary conviction offence is a fine of $2,000 and/or six months imprisonment. Summary conviction offences are always dealt with at the Ontario Court of Justice level. The accused person charged with a summary conviction offence can only have a trial by Judge alone (i.e. not a trial with a jury).
