What can you expect when you are arrested for a serious crime?
Depending on the severity of the crime you have been arrested for, you will either be let out on bail or kept in police custody once you have been charged. In some cases you may not be charged until the police have completed further enquiries, in which case you will be required to attend further interviews at a later date following which the police may charge you with an offence
If you are released on bail you will be able to go home until the court hearing is due, though there may be certain conditions imposed such as living at a specific address.
For serious crimes, the likelihood is you will be kept in police custody as you might be considered a flight-risk or a danger to the public. Even if you have committed the crime you have been accused of, you still have rights while in custody, including access to legal advice.
