I stupidly followed my brother into a house over a drug

This answer was rated:

Hi. I stupidly followed my brother into a house over a drug argument 15 years ago. My brother got sentenced and spent time in prison for affray he never gave me up even though they were looking for his accomplice. After that I realised I didn't want this life and moved away met my now wife and have two children and a very good and respectable job. Now my brother has nothing classed as schizophrenia and threatened me with telling the police what I done with him. This was 15 years ago I was only twenty at the time and felt pressured by my older brother. Should I be worried? Because I am. Thanks
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
I assume you are asking if you could be prosecuted over the historic allegation please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes and what kind of sentence if any
Can they prosecute, they could. Affray is what called either way and that means no deadline. However given it was 15 years ago its unlikely that the Police would ever do anything, especially if you have kept your nose clean.
These are historic very old offences and to be honest not really that serious. If it was related to historic abuse or something then the Police are likely to take more notice. But they are unlikely to do anything about an affray 15 years ago.
