The Police caution
If the Police advise you that “You do not have to say anything but it may harm your defence if you do not mention when questioned something you later rely on in Court. Anything you do say may be given in evidence”, this means that you are suspected of committing an offence. We can offer you legal representation to protect your rights.
The outcome of a Police interview
After an interview the Police will make a decision whether to charge you with an offence, release you without charge or release you on bail for further investigation. Bail conditions may be imposed and a solicitor can negotiate bail on your behalf.
