yes ,,although ill have to locate the letter, i dont normally throw anything away,also they have written to me to ask if im using a set, which im not.
it was my son who used to watch tv,,but is now away at uni,
i cant really afford a licence hence i had to cancel the d/d,
im under a dmp with stepchange and have more pressing debts
ill plead not guilty in that case an wait for a hearing date. would it be advisable to write to the tv licensing and argue this before the case in order
for them to withdraw the charges? or would that be jeopardising my case,
also i realise you cant predict anything as such...but what is the likely fine for an early guilty plea? or a subsequent found guitly?
ty for your help. ps i havent found the letter it may be i thought that was the end of it....
Ok thank you for your advice and information.i will rate your response as excellent.ill wait and see what the response is from the tv enforcement,
If the case was dismissed after attending a hearing, for the reasons you mentioned i guess i wouldnt have to pay costs?
i really cant be risking getting into further financial difficulties.
So fingers crossed we may not have to get that far. sorry i couldnt offer more.regards Andrew Palmer,
i returned the summons indicating my intention to plead not guilty....
in the reasons why section i entered "abuse of process"
they have since written to me and advised they intend to apply to withdraw the summons and that I need not attend court on the 20th feb which was the original hearing date.
the letter is typed but not signed? im going to re check that the summons withdrawal still stands.
