The allegation was false because I'd been drunk and had been talking about an incident that had occurred in the past.
I have made no further allegations and no one was arrested.
No, I have made no other allegations previously. I have a clean criminal record, this is the first time I have gotten into trouble with the law.
I kept being told it was a minor offence. They have no evidence against me apart from the first call placed to the police. Are FPNs valid in Scotland? The officer said it would take 3 weeks (approx) from the time he submits a report to me hearing back, is this accurate?
I forgot to add that the police went looking for me after my phonecall and broke into my flat. I'd been at a friend's. This entire incident lasted 24 hours from when I made the call to when they found me at my friend's.
I had been totally unaware that this charge existed and after my no-comment police interview, the police asked me a couple of generic questions after turning off the tape recorder about why I'd done it. They seemed to empathise and be jovial about the fact that it wasn't my finest hour.
i'm really scared what the outcome will be as I'm an international student, and I'm looking to pursue a further masters in Scotland. Will this affect my visa applications?
