Theft Lawyers Melbourne (Clifton Hill) – (03) 9995 9155 – Free Initial 15 Minute Consultation
Have you either been interviewed or charged by police for an alleged sexual offence or indecent assault?
Before you speak to police, we recommend that you contact a lawyer to discuss what you say to police.
You should review our criminal law FAQs section which provides general advice on arrest and detention.
Police will usually charge you with multiple alternative offences, which is known as ‘loading up’.
It is essential that you get legal advice before you comment on the allegations. It is important to know that in Victoria you do not have a right to be legally represented at interview. You have a right to communicate with a legal practitioner, or attempt to communicate with a legal practitioner, that is, to make a telephone call.
Sometimes this is not always convenient.
Police will usually say before the interview ‘this is your opportunity to tell your story’. Be wary of this advice!
