what should i expect? am i going to be charged? will it appear on my CRB that an allegation of theft was made against me? i just need any infromation that may be helpful, like i said, i have never been to a police station and the whole thing is just daunting
My job requires an enhanced CRB, so would appreciate what the DBS stands for? In the worst case scenario, were he to claim that he saw me take the phone, would that change the direction the case will proceed? Does he need evidence to this effect? The PC said something to the effect it comes down to his word against yours so we need to hear your side.
What happens when i arrive at the station? should i require a solicitor? Can i go in without a solicitor, but if i feel overwhelmed by the questioning, ask for one? When you say it depends on how credible his allegation is? Can you provide some scenarios to illustrate a credible scenario?
Thank you! Where can i find a solicitor? sorry to ask, i have never needed one.
I am in Reading. Berkshire, and how much do you estimate it would cost?
