Possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose is covered under s. 88 of the Criminal Code. The definition of a weapon in Saskatchewan is very broad. It can include anything from firearms to knives and even vehicles. It is not uncommon for a weapons charge to be associated with other types of offences, such as drug charges, assault charges and break-and-enter charges. Possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose is considered a hybrid offence. Depending on the circumstances of your case, the Crown may proceed by summary or indictment. If convicted, you could face up to 10 years in jail and a fine of $5,000.
