A little warning!
Be careful what you say to the police if the police are asking you questions about your suspected involvement in a criminal offence. You may land yourself in very serious trouble by saying something that will be incriminating, such as a confession.
A confession is not just a full-blown admission. A confession is defined in law as being any statement that is wholly or even partly adverse to the person that made it and whether or not that has been made; and it does not need to be made to a person in authority, and it can be in words, or otherwise, such as, in a gesture.
You may not have had any direct involvement with the offence in question. But let's say that you knew something about this offence, you knew it was going to happen or you knew somebody was going to do it, or worse still, you were involved in it but there is no other direct evidence linking you to it. And just a few words can count as confession evidence and may go against you. So be careful and think before you say anything.
Remember, you are not under any obligation to say anything to the police when asked questions about your suspected involvement in a criminal offence.
Do not hesitate to get legal advice!
Legal advice is your right and it is free when you are arrested and interviewed (questioned) under caution or required to attend a police station on a voluntary basis to be interviewed (questioned) under caution.
