Hi. Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help with this. Who advised you to please guilty?
A Solicitor called MC Bryan based in Reading who went out of business shortly after my trial, he has disappeared and I am advised has not renewed his membership of the SRA.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX have to trvale back and will probably lose reception so can I get back to you here after 6 please?
No problem, I will be here all evening and look forward to hearing from you
Yes go ahead Jo
Correct, and now I have to privately fund a defence as the CPS want to have another go. I am seriously out of pocket and am trying to see if I can get some of my money back
The Crown Court Judge - Angella Morris Vacated my plea, and sent the matter back to the magistrates court, the CPS then set another trial date.
The Judge did authorise a defence costs order at legal aid rates some weeks after the appeal hearing, I am aware that the judge was not advised that the matter had been delayed by the Crown to start with, i feel that as she has allowed defence costs at legal aid rates, she would consider a full repayment at the actual prices I paid if it was explained that my appeal would have been lodged 5 months earlier and thus within the timescale, - any view on this.
OK thank you for your time, - I suspect that there will be a great deal of words based upon these changes.
I will sign out now
