Seeking Pre-Charge Representations For The Early Stages Of An Investigation?

Although conviction rates are low for accusations of sexual assault, it is best not to be lulled into a false sense of security. 

The earlier you seek legal representation when invited for a police interview under caution, the better. At the end of the day, even a formal interview means you are a suspect, even if you know you are completely innocent. 

Contrary to common misconceptions, the police are not always impartial and can influence a CPS decision to prosecute a case to court.
