The police have asked me to go to the station as my ex partner

Customer Question

The police have asked me to go to the station as my ex partner has accused me of assault. But they said she doesn't want to press charges. I have not done anything wrong. They said I'm not about to be arrested but the interview will be recorded. Should I take a solicitor? The police said the alleged assault took place December 2015

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
You can ask for a Solicitor yes. They will have the 999 call and if there are injuries may have photographs. Just because a victim does not want to press charges, doesnt mean you can't be charged or convicted.
Depending on the evidence they have you could still be charged without evidence of your ex. But I would hope if there is no support they may not go ahead with it.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
