My son and the lady in question had fallen out after 8 years - my son found it difficult to come to terms with the breakup he sent several text messages I don't know the content - it appears that the lady called the police after receiving these messages in the hopes that the police would warn my son and the messages would stop, however, the police said that they couldn't let it rest there and arrested my son and took him to the station for questioning, they then gave him a court date for Chorley Magistrates 21st June -the lady now wants to retract all her statements because she didn't want the situation to go this far. My son has a live suspended sentence that he got for fraud at The Old Bailey in January 2011 - The lady wants to write to the CPS representative in order to plead with her and to retract her statement in the hopes that the court will be lenient towards my son - she is doing this because she wants to not because she has been pressured in any way - regards Catherine
Apparently there was more than 2 texts and he made out that he was going to take his life - I'm unsure what else has gone on in this case, but the lady in question is eager to get in touch with the courts to try and help my son, I told him that if she needs to write to the court then she doesn't necessarily need a name just the case number and the courts will sort ity out from there, my biggest worry really is not so much what, if anything, this lady can do but with the other offence hanging over him will he have to go to prison and serve the suspended sentence - I am really worried for him, he's not a bad chap just makes stupid mistakes and big ones - thank you for trying to help - Catherine
It does make sense however maybe I haven't made myself too clear it is my son that i am most worried about he is in front of the crown court now due to his lady friend making this complaint to the police - my son has an unspent 2 year suspended sentence and i am now so worried that he will be imprisoned - I understand what you say in your response - it's very difficult to cope with what might or might not happen - thank you for your help - Catherine
