Crime Allegedly Committed

The first stage of the criminal justice process is an allegation that you or your business have committed a criminal offence. It is important to remember that this is only an allegation and the fundamental principle is that you are ‘innocent until proven guilty'.

The majority of criminal offences are reported to and recorded by the police, although various other public bodies also investigate and prosecute alleged criminal offences. Once a crime has been reported, an investigation will be conducted into the alleged offence. Your first notice of an allegation might be an account freezing order, restraint order, execution of a search warrant or an invitation for an interview under caution. Seeking legal advice in the early stages can help mitigate the impact of intervention without prior notice. We will happily speak to you without obligation about how we can assist.
