It’s crucial that you get your case dismissed before it reaches the court stage.

For example, it’s not uncommon for a prosecution to accuse a person with conspiracy to commit bank robbery to expose precisely who was involved in the crime.

Without a lawyer, you cannot find out more until the interview

If you discover that you or your loved one are under investigation as part of a conspiracy to commit bank robbery charge, it’s typical to be invited to the police station for an interview.

The police are renowned for using a variety of tactics in order to gain a conviction. One of these tactics is to keep evidence close to their chest. They will not disclose it until it’s beneficial for them to do so.

Unfortunately, this nondisclosure of evidence puts you into a vulnerable position. You are at risk of incriminating yourself by saying something that goes against the evidence that the police has. The benefit of engaging competent and experienced legal help is that your lawyer will know that they are at liberty to ask the police what evidence they have on you and whether all of it has been disclosed.

Instruct a legal professional as soon as possible

Under no circumstances should you attend a police interview without the support of a competent criminal solicitor.

The high-pressure environment and probing questions will be tricky to navigate. You could find the entire situation to be very upsetting. There’s a good chance that the police will put you into a position where you say something that will incriminate yourself.

Without legal guidance, there is a chance that you will be charged at the end of the interview with conspiracy charges.
