These laws are regarded as vital to the smooth functioning of our society. They cover many areas of our lives, and almost all of us at some point or another will come close to infringing even if it is just a parking ticket or speeding fine.
People can be accused of breaking the law and charged by the police when they are not in fact guilty. And often the police will focus on the negative aspects of a situation during their processes.Our criminal justice system features some important underlying principles. One is that a person accused of a crime is regarded as innocent until proven in court to be guilty. Another and very important one is that a person normally cannot be forced to give a statement to the police about pending criminal charges. This is the right to silence.If you are charged with an offence by the police or under investigation it is essential to have the best possible assistance to help deal with the situation. The effects of a criminal conviction can be far reaching and have many future disadvantages. It is also strongly recommended not to make any statements to police without having proper legal advice first.
