Being Charged With a Crime
People often contact us and tell us that they have been “charged with x or Y”. Often they haven’t been charged but they have been questioned by police.
Some investigations are concluded the day that they are questioned by police, but often they continue for several weeks or even months before decisions are made to charge a suspect.
Whether you have been charged or requisitioned, you will receive a sheet setting out the offences for which you have been charged. Some offences are summary only, which meant that they can only be tried in the Magistrates’ court , the police have a six month limit within which to being these cases to court. Other offences which can be tried in both the Magistrates court or Crown Court are not subject to the same time limits.
