I was accused of [xx], what can I do?

An allegation made against you in relation to criminal offending is just that.

Human nature often tells us that we should be frank with the police and tell our side of the story. In criminal investigations this really is the exception rather than the rule. It is for the police or prosecution to ‘prove their case’ against you and this is a fundamental component of our justice system.

By electing to exercise your rights you are still being co-operative with police while you will not be eroding a possible defence that may be available to you.

If police tell you that they would like you to attend for an interview, you are summonsed to Court or are arrested by police and police wish to commence an interview. Ask to speak to a solicitor before you say anything other than your name and your address. Be aware that there are laws about the provision of passwords to electronic devices. 

A solicitor will be able to guide you through what can be a very stressful experience and provide you with advice tailored to your personal circumstances.
