Common Criminal Legal Questions:
HAVE YOU BEEN ARRESTED?
You have the right to telephone a friend, a relative or a Solicitor of your choice.
HAVE YOU BEEN GIVEN BAIL?
This does not happen automatically. If you haven’t been given Bail then you or a friend or relative should contact a Solicitor immediately so that on your first appearance before the Court a Bail Application can be made on your behalf.
This can be complicated and involve many factors to be presented to the Court to have the best chance of ensuring your release until your matter is dealt with by the Court.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT!!
Do not say anything, make any statements or answer any questions without speaking to a Solicitor. You must tell the Police your name, address and telephone number but do not tell them anything further without advice from your Solicitor.
