Jersey Criminal Investigation: Your Rights in Custody

Procedure | Criminal Defence Lawyers

The custody officer at the Jersey police station must explain that you have rights in custody to:

    • Consult privately with a legal adviser
    • review the rules the police must follow (Police Procedures and Criminal Evidence (Codes of Practice) (Jersey) Order 2004)
    • tell someone where you are
    • see a written notice which sets out the above three rights
    • have a copy of the custody record
    • Medical help if you are ill

You need an experienced criminal defence lawyer on your side, right from the outset, to defend your rights and obtain the best result for you. Whether or not you should exercise your right to silence is something that you think about carefully, with the benefit of legal advice. Each case is individual and fact dependant and the aim should be to arrive at a decision which is best for you, in the particular circumstances of your case.

If you are arrested, don’t qualify for legal aid and you wish to discuss your rights, please give us a call on 630530.

For further information please do not hesitate to call 630530 or email us on criminaldefence@parslowsjersey.com
