CRIMINAL DAMAGE & ARSON DEFENSE
If You Have Been Arrested Or Invited To An Interview
Some of the most important decisions made in relation to a case are made at the police station.
If Morton’s solicitors are involved at an early stage of an investigation, we are often able to affect the outcome.
You are not obliged to say anything to the police and we advise all clients to maintain their right to silence until they speak with us.
A criminal damage or arson case can proceed solely on admissions made to the police without the need for witnesses to ever attend court.
You are entitled to have a solicitor present free of charge at any police interview. This is true for what may seem to be the most trivial offence. You should never be interviewed without legal representation.
If you have been invited to attend a Police Station we want to hear from you on 0161 477 1121.
DOMESTIC CRIMINAL DAMAGE ALLEGATIONS
Was The Damage Caused In A Domestic Incident?
Was the damage caused in a domestic incident? The definition of what counts as “domestic” is far reaching. It also has certain consequences, most significantly:-
- The case will be treated more seriously by the court
- You could be restricted from living at, or attending the family home (by virtue of strict bail conditions)
- You could be restricted from having contact with your partner and/or your children
- The case will be highly likely to proceed despite the wishes of the victim
- A Restraining Order could be imposed even if you are found not guilty of the offence
A Restraining Order is similar to an injunction. It does not have to be restricted in time and can impose a number of restrictions upon you.
Any breach of such an order has a guideline starting point of a term of immediate imprisonment, and a maximum sentence of 5 years imprisonment.
Mortons Solicitors can advise you and provide expert representation.
