Following the conclusion of the police investigation a decision will be made as to what happens next. You may find that the police take no further action which means, unless further evidence comes to light, that is the end of the matter. In our experience this is highly unusual but you must be aware that this is a possibility.
Alternatively, for example you may be offered a Caution whether that is a simple caution or one subject to conditions. We will explain the implications of these outcomes, among others, when required.
Finally, you may find you are charged with one or more offences and be required to attend Court. This can be done by the police who will then bail you to Court or remand you in custody for you to be produced at the next available Magistrates Court sitting. If you have been released under investigation you will likely be sent a Court Summons or Postal Requisition (effectively a charge sheet) via the post requiring you to attend Court on a given date and time.
If you have received a Postal Requisition or Summons please contact us so that we can advise you of the next steps.
