Criminal Charges & Police Investigations
Have you been charged by the Queensland Police?
Criminal and police investigations might happen suddenly – and they can have serious implications. So, what are the next steps?
After Being Arrested
If you are arrested by the police, then you have the right to telephone a friend, relative or lawyer of your choice. Although it might be tempting to contact a friend or relative, it’s a good idea to use the opportunity to speak to a criminal lawyer. When you contact a criminal lawyer, you’ll get legal advice about your situation. You can use this advice to help you with decisions – such as what you say or don’t say to the police.
Before you speak to a criminal lawyer, you should exercise your right to remain silent. This means that you should avoid saying anything, making statements, or answering questions until you’ve received legal advice.
You should, however, share your name and contact details with police when requested. Also, make sure you comply with their instructions and avoid obstructing them in any way. If you obstruct police in the performance of their duties, you can be charged.
