As stated by the Criminal Code, a person arrested in Ontario has to be released or brought before a justice within 24 hours of their arrest.
A person charged under the criminal law must be released unless the prosecutor can demonstrate why they should continue to be detained. In circumstances with more serious charges, the law makes it the job of the criminal defence lawyer to explain why an accused person should be released.
