need case law and clarification in determining who the credibilty of a witness and his evidence?

a fellow was arrested for about 10 days some years aback and went on an identification parade. he was not pointed out by any witness and was further questioned in the presence of his lawyer by the police. he denied knowledge of involvement and participation in the said crime. he was arrested again years later and gave information to the police of his knowledge and involvement into the above crime. he places himself at the crime scene with others, which one is how facing the charge and the other who was charged and was acquitted by the courts years ago? how credible is he? how credible is his evidence? can you provide a case law for study please? all prior statements and question and answer sessions were done in the presence of a lawyer

Credibility isnt an issue in this case…no one is going to impeach is credibility if he is admitting to the crime.
