I am just so worried
Expert:  james bruce replied 19 days ago.

When police arrest someone, once the person has been interviewed then depending on th offence, the person can be cautioned and released, released no further act, charged with an offence, or as in your case released on police bail to re-attend at a latter time.

Being released on police bail, does not mean they have a lack of evidence. It simply means that they have not finished their investigation. Further enquires may need to be made, other people to be interviewed, the alleged victim to be interviewed or reinterviewed, phones, computers etc to be seized and forensically examined. Advice to be sought form the Crown prosecution service as to whether to charge an if so with what offence.

When you answer bail they may well interview you again.

Will I go to jail
Expert:  james bruce replied 19 days ago.

I cannot say. It would depend on the charge if one tis brought, then the seriousness of the offence and if your are convicted.
