My brother has been staying at home for a few weeks now. He broke up with his girlfriend and got in a difficult situation, so I thought that offering him to stay with us for some time would help him get back on track.
Now he is a very kind and gentle man, but let’s just say that he has a problem with alcohol. Yesterday, the police came to our home while my brother was away, and asked to talk to him. I told them I didn’t know where he was, and they insisted that I call them whenever he got back.
When my brother came back in the afternoon, I told him what had happened, and he told me that he didn’t want me to call the police. When my husband insisted that we had to call them, my brother left again.
Now this is a very stressful situation for the whole family as you can imagine. I have no idea what my brother has done, or whether he is really guilty of anything. I’m thinking maybe I should contact a criminal lawyer on his behalf but I’m not sure how it works and I’m feeling so confused.
Can anyone give me some advice? I don’t know what to do…
I’m sorry that this was so long to read, and thank you to anyone who will take the time to reply to this.

First of all, I’m so sorry! This sounds like a terrible situation… Do you have any idea where your brother might be? Do you have a way to contact him? Maybe this is just a misunderstanding, and the police only wanted to ask him a few questions to check something.
I hope everything will be alright.
Thank you. I called him on his phone earlier, but we only talked for a minute and then he said his phone was running out of battery and he needed to hang up. I think he is staying with a friend, but I’m not sure I should call the police and tell them… If ever he isn’t there at all and they go search for him there, his friend won’t be too happy about it.
Your brother is acting like he has something to hide… Or maybe he’s just afraid of going to the police, sometimes they will arrest and charge someone without any proof.
I agree that you should contact a criminal lawyer. In fact, if you can contact your brother again, tell him to call Aswani K. Datt and to explain his situation. He could go with him to the police station and have them explain what they want.
I think the worst thing your brother could do is keep hiding and running away. Whether he is guilty of something or not, he needs to talk with a good criminal defence lawyer as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for your advice. I called my brother again and I told him to hire Aswani K. Datt and to stop hiding from the police. He kept telling me he didn’t do anything wrong, but I told him he needed to discuss this with a lawyer, not with me, at least not for the moment.
I feel much better now, and I’m hopeful that this situation will be resolved soon.
That’s good to hear! I hope everything will be fine for you and your brother, and most of all, that he will manage to get back on track like you said.
Thank you so much.
