Caution Plus 3 Interviews FAQs
Won’t the police think I am guilty if I have a Solicitor with me?
Absolutely not. You have a right to obtain legal advice, and no one will question or criticise you for exercising your right to have your Solicitor present. Having your Solicitor attend a Caution Plus 3 Interview with you is NOT an admission of guilt. It is crucial that you take legal advice to ensure you do not say anything that may lead to you inadvertently incriminating yourself.
What does the ‘Caution’ stand for?
You will probably be familiar, from TV and movies, with the caution given by the police before conducting an interview. The police must state:
“You do not have to say anything. But it may harm your defence if you don’t mention now, something which you later rely on in Court. And anything you do say may be given in evidence”.
Do I have to attend a Caution Plus 3 Interview?
No, which is why it is also referred to as a Voluntary Police Interview. However, if you refuse to attend or walk out in the middle of the interview, the police may choose to arrest you. It is normally in your best interests to co-operate with the police – remember, if they did not have reasons to suspect you of a criminal offence, they would not have asked you to attend the interview in the first place.
How can Sohail help with pre-charge bail?
Sohail deals with police day in, day out. He knows how they think, how they react to certain information, and the tactics they use to extract information. No matter what the police say, you are not being asked to go in for a friendly ‘chat’. They suspect you of committing a crime and, if they can, want to gather enough evidence to prosecute you.
It is also important to point out that the police can make mistakes and/or misinterpret what you are saying. Do you really want to risk not having an experienced Criminal Law Solicitor by your side advising you?
Sohail is a fully qualified freelance solicitor regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Law Society. He must therefore abide by professional codes of conduct, including acting with honesty and integrity and will always act in his client’s best interests.
Do not take any chances with your reputation and liberty. If you are asked to attend a Caution Plus 3 Interview, email Sohail immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can trust that he will take control of the situation and advise you on what to do.
With Sohail by your side, you can be confident that your best interests are being protected and that he is doing everything possible to secure your release.
