Thank you question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
If you have only just been to the police station then there is nothing that anybody can do. Until you are charged and he receives the Crown's evidence there is no action that can realistically be taken.
Thereafter, it depends on the facts of the case. Many cases involve no real investigation at all. It is just a case of shaking away at their case until you create a doubt. Some cases do require defence witnesses to be seen although the nature of the allegation you face it is not likely.
If you give me more specific information about what you are hoping he would tell then I will be able to tell you whether that is likely.
Can I clarify anything else ?

Ihope that I may just get a suspended sentence.but the three girls are all friends. If found guilty what length of sentence am i likely to receive.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
It depends. I would really need the facts of the allegation to tell you reliably.
