What is the current sentencing range for an assault where the accused has pleaded guilty to a charge of assault, assault and sexual assault?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from R. v A.E., 2017 ONCJ 511 (CanLII):

The case law as set out is also helpful in establishing sentencing “ranges” for offences such as that before the court. However, the courts have also kept in mind that sentencing is an individual exercise and as noted in cases such as Regina v. Jacko, 2010 ONCA 452 at paragraph 90: “Sentencing ‘ranges’…are not immovable or immutable. They are and represent guidelines, of greater or lesser utility depending upon the breadth of the range. Individual cases may fall within or outside the range. To consider a range of sentence as creating a de facto minimum sentence misses the point, ignores the fundamental principle of proportionality... Individual circumstances matter.”
