Using A Lawyer For A Police Interview Regarding A Sexual Offence

If you are innocent of an offence and have nothing to hide, it is tempting to think you can go without a lawyer at a police interview. However, this can be a detrimental mistake. 

Such interviews are the beginning of a case and what is said during them goes a long way to deciding as to whether or not the police proceed. 

If the police are looking to take any action against you such as a caution or conditional caution, you should always speak to a solicitor. 

The police can use various tactics to elicit information and many people end up wrongly incriminating themselves during this process.  If this occurs, it is unlikely that you will be able to take retract any statement or account provided in the police station. Anything said during a police interview can be used in a court of law.
