Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What is the nature of the offence please?
suspicion of assisting a suicide
Ok - when you go back several things may happen:
1) The Police may take no further action - that will be the end of the matter
2) The Police could re-bail you to a later date
3) The Police may charge you
When you go back it is possible that you could be arrested and interviewed again
But usually they rebail you after they have interviewed you
So the chances are one of the above 3 may happen
When you go back someone will be available, even if they rebail you
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I doubt they will charge me - there has been no crime committed. But I am very afraid they will lock me up again and I don't think I can cope with that again. Are they entitled to do this?
Yes if they have reason to, ie need to interview you againb
But they are entitled to allow you to get a duty Solicitor
Potentially they can but unlikely
Is there any way I could know that in advance? Would I be wise to take a solicitor with me?
No, you can't know until you get there. If you called and they said you were going to be charged, you could skip the country.
But its unlikely.
The thing is: it's unlikely that a 68 year old woman who has just arrived home and found her husband dead would be arrested and locked in a police station cell for 10 hours. But it happened and I would prefer that it didn't happen again. Is there anything I can do that would minimise the risk?
Indeed I agree. Sadly there is not much you can do.
However its very unlikely you would be re-arrested, they have no reason to
Its fairly straight forward and I would hope that they take no further action
But I cant say 100% it wont happen - but it is very unlikely
Thanks, ***** *****
