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.
Thanksfor the information
I'm afraid it isn't that simple.
The difficulty is firstly that giving falsedetails is obstructing a police officer or indeed perverting the course ofjustice and then I'm afraid the option of a fixed penalty is long gone infavour of a year in custody.
I am not sure what to advise as they willalmost certainly catch up with you.
If they don't catch up with you then at leastyou have avoided the greater risk.
If you do want to bring this to your attentionthen you can do so by attending any police station but you need to be aware ofthe risk
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a waythat is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will bemore than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once againfor using our services.
That is perverting.
If you are lucky it is obstructing.
It is difficult to say really.
Obviously if you are going to be caught anyway then it would ahve been better to hand yourself in.
If you are not then it would not.
The real solution is not to give false names to the police but that doesn;t help now.
You have to take a risk management deicion
So have you had a letter from them?
how bad was the lie?
Is it just a misspelling?
But what name did you give and what is the real name?
I suppose that what you could do is this; accept it and enclose a covering letter to the effect that there has been a miscommunication over your first name, it was you on the night and your name is X.
That is truthful and also might be accepted without question. But obviously only tell the truth.
Just what I said.
Would like to accept it but your name is wrong.
Then you haven't commented on how it came about.
Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer, please let me know if you need me to clarify anything or if you have any additional questions-I am happy to help!”
