Say I hypothetically had knowledge of a crime, under what circumstances would the perpetrator be interviewed at the station and sent back home, and under what circumstances would they be held indefinitely at the jail?

Depends on the hypothetical crime.

Depending on what kind of crime you're talking about, it could vary quite a bit.

It is all about Probable Cause

The Police interview to develop Probable Cause to make an arrest or to substantiate already known facts.

If they get/have sufficient Probable Cause, they will arrest and the subject stays in custody until bonded; if they can not get enough, they have to release at some point.

How long a subject can be held, varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction..

Hope this helps

It also depends on what they know about playing the system. If they have committed the crime they may have thought out their defence.

Thank you. I guess I will look into my jurisdiction.


I feel weird about posting this, and not sure how comfortable you are with how much information I reveal about it on here.


Hope I haven't been too troublesome in the past.

You can send me a PM Here if you would rather speak about it off the boards..

If we are not here to help each other, then why are we here at all?

Have knowledge of a crime? If you have done nothing then don't worry about it, say nothing. They can hold anyone for 48hrs or so, just say I want to speak to a lawyer and that's it. Don't let them get you chatty about the weather just 'I want to speak with a lawyer and that's it, eventually they will kick you loose. Same scenario if you are guilty of a crime, say nothing, lawyer thank you, say nothing. If they have some evidence to keep you they will no matter what you say, so say nothing, only you can help them arrest you, so say nothing, lawyer please. It's not against the law to know about a crime, forget about it, say nothing always

Ok, then in that case I will, but it's complicated.


I think I have information about underage porn. But if I turn the person in then my whole life will change dramatically.

I need to think on this so I will probably go to bed shortly and be available tomorrow.

If you haven't told the person you know about it, then don't. You will need to get good evidence to bring to the police, so that he will be arrested right away. Otherwise they will investigate first.

There are members in law enforcement here that will help and give you great advise, i'm sure. I think you have a responsibility now, since you know, to turn him in.

Don't be scared, be strong. Your life will change dramatically and it may be a struggle at first, but your conscience will be clean and things will get better.

Best wishes

I'm so sorry. That is a horrible situation to be in.

I have another thing for you to consider. What are the implications, to yourself, if you are correct in what you think you know if you do nothing?

For example, if you lived in the same house as this person, or worse used a computer jointly with them, that could be bad. If they are caught later, you could be accused of being complicit in or a part of whatever is going on.

You're assuming the perpetrator is male?

Having seen how this assumption can enable perpetrators to continue I have to point out it's potentially a very dangerous assumption.

Frankly, if you have evidence of a crime you should report it. Just do it.

If you are worried that the person will be questioned and then released to "come and get you" then you need to make that clear to the police.

At the end of the day, the police need to make judgements based on facts, plausibility and all that. They cannot detain someone up without just cause, nor step outside of their powers to do so.

Have courage. report and take the moral high ground.

Yes, feeding someone into the system through the police maw will effectively, often, end any life they have.
The system grinds it's victims into dust.
Perhaps someone needs to be ground into dust?

And then, sometimes the cops just shoot first and explain it after.

How 'underage' are you talking?
I might just grind them to dust myself!

Perhaps you and the person can get help, find healing. before going the torture route?
Xtian? Do you Love the perp?

Would you care to elaborate?
In saying that "you think" you have information, I take it you didn't actually witness any pornography. What led you to believe someone was in possession of illegal pornography?
Also, nudity isn't necessarily illegal, so if you just saw a picture of a kid in a bathtub, that's not necessarily child pornography.

Guys, I live with him.

I've been in a relationship with Eric for the past 9+ years. I've known about what he is for about half that time.

If he gets interviewed at the interrogation room and sent home, then things in the house will become awkward immediately and they may never be the same again. He has a history of being violent to me on rare occasions.

I've seen pictures of boys on his smart phone out of the corner of my eye. I would say the youngest looked to be about 7 years.

In a sense doing this would "free" me from him, and I know this sounds bad, but it would be supremely easier for me if they would pick him up and hold him in a cell indefinitely, rather than interrorgating him and sending him back home.
