What it Means to be Released Under Investigation

So, what happens when you are released under investigation? This means that the investigation will be ongoing. Once complete, you will be notified of the findings.  It also means you’ll be released and free to go without a charge and with no obligation to return on bail for the offence. 

In this instance, you should contact JD Solicitors so that we can stay in contact with the police and update you on what’s unfolding. We will confirm the police are making progress and ensure they still need to hold any belongings that they have in their possession. 

There are three ways it may play out, which include:

  • You may be required to go for another interview
  • You might be charged or even summoned to attend court
  • No further action will be taken
