Is evidence needed to charge somone near a crime?

I know police can arrest someone easily but can they charge someone with a serious crime lacking evidence?
Answers:
It is as Bucks says. The officer has to convince the custody sergeant that within is good reason to charge the personage. The custody officer can (and does) refuse the charge if he/she's not convinced.
Although it is a waste of time, a person can be arrested and charged beside a crime. The police handle that aspect of things.

But the prosecuting attorney has to wish if enough evidence exists to obtain a conviction.

In nonspecific the police and prosecutors are supposed to work closely with each other in the past an arrest is made. They guide each other. A prosecutor can express what evidence is needed and the police can ascertain if such evidence in house or can be obtain.
They'll need evidence to charge someone with a crime, if there's no evidence after nothing proves it was that soul who commited the crime.
no there not guilty until they travel to court to prove they are not guilty........... evidence supports that they are not guilty Source(s): me!!
No
In the UK a constable only needs fine grounds to suspect an offence to make an arrest (if nearby is a power of arrest for that offence). To charge a person of a crime it is necessary to show satisfactory evidence to the custody officer and convince them a charge is in order. CPS guidelines is that a satchel needs an 80% chance of nouns for them to support a charge. Source(s): Ex-cop
