I followed the directive of prooving I had booked a holiday for the first court appearance. I gave my work address for further communication. There was no communication sent to my work. Today, after the not showing up for court was dismissed, I asked for paperwork to give to my employer as to why I was arrested at work in front of fellow employees. I was told by the court office, it was sent to no fixed abode. I had given my work address.
Im sorry, I have spent 26 hours in custody for not answering a court appointment that I did not receive.
For Jo C. I feel like when I asked for something to show the judge dismissed the not showing up for court part of all this, I should have some paperwork to back up my credubility at work, after being arrested at work. Ive been fobbed off by the court that I never provided an address, when I did, and consequently spent time in custody and lost wages.
No. Thank you. My duty solicitor has agreed to talk with my employer. My original question that the court had an address supplied by me, but chose to send out a letter to no fixed abode has not been answered.
I get it, just one more easy target. What a waste of money to get told that.
Cancel it. Ive been through hell this past 2 days, and apparently being fobbed off by a court official that a letter was sent out to me at no fixed abode is perfectly normal, even though I gave my work address, I give up. All I wanted to know is how or who I complain to, not too much to ask.
