Advice from Ashmans Solicitors

The number one piece of advice we can give to anyone accused of a crime is: Retain the services of a skilled, specialist lawyer as soon as possible, Tell them absolutely everything and follow their advice to the letter.

Your ashmans’ criminal defence team will typically start by:

One of the greatest nightmares of our times is being falsely accused of rape or some other sexual offence. The simple truth is that even the accusation of such a crime can sometimes be enough to destroy one’s reputation, family and career even in the absence of a successful prosecution.

Of course, the key to overcoming such accusations or even a prosecution with your life and reputation intact is handling the situation carefully.

If you have not been arrested:

If you know that you have been reported either to social services or to the police and accused of a sexual offence, or if you have already been interviewed by someone in regards to such an allegation, there are a few things you must do quickly to ensure yourself of an impartial, fair investigation.

Do not assume the matter is concluded simply because you have not heard from the police in a matter of weeks or even months. Some matters are indeed dropped quickly, but major crimes can take several months to generate formal charges, and some cases can be re-opened even years later.
Resist any request to speak without your solicitor present and in particular any suggestions that you could ‘clear your name’ quickly consenting to an interview without the protection of your lawyer. Speaking to the police early and without a solicitor puts you at risk, as you have not had a chance to think about events and gain an accurate, consistent recollection of what happened for yourself. The police are trained to identify and take advantage of inconsistencies, vague memories and accidental misstatements, and will use them all to your disadvantage. Ashmans can provide you with an expert criminal offence solicitor at any time of the day or night. Simply contact us at our 24 Hour Criminal Defence Line, 0208 159 2869. This representation is provided completely free of charge irrespective of your financial circumstances.
Again, never consent to be interviewed without your solicitor present. The police need not make clear to you what you have been accused of, and often it is only through the questions they ask that you can gain insight into what they are investigating, This is another area where your solicitor can be a great help. If you do not have a lawyer or other representative present, it is vital that you take detailed notes about every question asked, and how you answered. It may be many months before you learn more about the case.
This cannot be said too much. Ideally, you should retain the services of an expert criminal solicitor before you are interviewed in any way. Ask for the opportunity to retain a lawyer before consenting to an interview with social services or the police.

If you are being questioned about a sexual offence, call us now on 01924 501 717 or on our 24 Hour Criminal Defence Line, 0208 159 2869. We can help.
The desire to clear your name quickly is completely understandable, but it is almost always a bad idea to speak to the police without a solicitor present, even if you are completely innocent in this situation. The likelihood you ‘clearing your name’ by doing so is extremely slight. The majority of the time this only aids the police in gathering evidence against you. There must be no ‘quick, friendly chats’ or conversations with an officer who ‘knows that the accusations against you are false’. Like they say on TV, anything you say can be used against you.
It is never too late to retain the services of a skilled criminal solicitor. Even if you have already attended a police or social services interview, assisted by a duty solicitor or not, getting a lawyer quickly can still be a huge help to you. One thing you can do is to write down absolutely everything you can remember about what they said to you, what questions they asked you, how you answered, and anything else you may have said to them.
