Arrests & Questioning
If you’ve been arrested or called for questioning, it is important to remember your presumption of innocence. This is the essence of how the Australian criminal justice system works, and why it is vital that you never speak to a police officer without first talking to a lawyer.
Your obligation is always to first tell the officer of your legal name, your date of birth and your address. In some cases, you may also need to provide identification material such as your fingerprints if you have been served with a certain notice. However, you are not obligated to answer any other question and nor should you do so. That is, you should always exercise your right to silence.
Be cautious of any representation by a police officer of an ‘off the record’ conversation. These simply do not exist and anything you say or do will be used against you at some stage and event limit or prevent strong defences later on.
It is always crucial to immediately seek legal advice as anything you say will be held against you later, and is likely to have a significant impact on the outcome of your matter.
