Good Morning
My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question.
Did you take the item without paying?
Do you believe that what happened is still as a result of your mental health issues?
Are you having treatment for the PTSD currently?
You have to attend at the station and you should have photos of your injuries.
All you have to tell the police is your name and address. You do not have to tell them anything else. You have a right to remain silent.
