You’ve been charged by the Police for breaking the law. Whether you are innocence or you made a mistake, right now it doesn’t really matter. You have to answer to the charge, failing to do so only complicates things further for you.
Just because you have been charged, does not mean that you are guilty. Our justice system allows to you to explain the circumstances as to why you did what you did. The process also lets you put forward an excuse as to why you should not be held accountable for what happened.
