Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
How can I help?
I just need to know what your question is
Obviously there are no magic wands. There is no way of ensuring that you don't get a criminal record. If they make an allegation then all you can do is defend it.
There is no way of heading it off. That is called perverting the course of justice and that would not only lead to a criminal record but to a long period in prison.
I'm afraid that you cannot force Sainsbury's to disclose their CCTV. That is not Crown evidence. That is evidence that belongs to Sainsbury's. If they disclose it to the police then you would be entitled sight of what had been provided but you cannot demand that. The police could possibly seize it but you cannot force them to do that.
Forcing third party disclosure is quite a high test. But in any event, you would not be entitled to full vision of their CCTV as most of it would be irrelevant to this incident.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No, you would be entitled to defend it.
Sainsburys don't need consent to use CCTV on their premises not indeed does anybody else. You don;t have a right not to be filmed in the UK
If the police see is it then it is either shown to you if it supports their case or if it undermines their case or assists your defence.
Yes, that is a dictation error. If it reaches the police it will be disclosed to you in the above circumstances.
No, you wouldnt be entitled to do that even if it were in the possession of the police. That is not the way the disclosure regime works I'm afraid.
Probably best to do nothing until you know the police are looking for you.
Then make an appointment to surrender voluntarily.
Go in for interview.
They will make contact if they want you.
