This answer was rated:

The police wish to interview me regarding a mild assault i carried out following some obscene provocation. Should I admit it?

Do you have any previous?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Not for anything.

It is not really possible to say in this environment.

If they offer a caution then you would have to admit the offence to receive it. But you should only be accepting a caution if the evidence is sufficient to convict at court.

Obviously I can't say either way.

You really should have a solicitor with you during interview.

This always presuming they offer a caution. If they don't then it should certainly be a no comment interview.

Can I clarify anything for you?
