Case Study Tony

Satisfactory Essays
Overall, I believe that the police have acted lawfully in their treatment of Tony. The police mainly have followed the rules set in PACE 1984 and COP and reasonable suspicion is present. The police have grounds to question him because police constables Denman and Brooks believed that there were enough grounds for suspicion as they found a carrier bag with money that also had a till receipt inside it under his bed. The second issue in this case is whether Tony’s confession is likely to be admissible. An evidence is considered admissible if it could be used in the courts. Section 82(1) of PACE provides a definition of what a confession is; includes any statement wholly or partly adverse to the person who made it, whether made to a person in authority
