Ok so just o be clear- the police officer came back to me and said that she was ordered to pay back £8,500 (this was equal to the amount she admitted taking from us). So does that mean that eventhough she was ordered to pay it back that the court do nothing to enforce it? Can I contact the court to find out what has happened and if so how do I do that?
If this fails I shall contact small claims court. Is there a time limit on this for me to pursue a claim as she was sentenced in Jan last year?
Ok thank you. Would I not need some kind of proof from the court of her conviction before lodging a calim at small claims court - not sure how to get that from them. This sounds like a really dumb quesiton but I assume at this level it woud have been heard in magistrates court not crown court so it would be a matter of writing to the magistrates court for clarification of the sentencing? I have literally nothing.
That made me laugh but I completely get it! Thank you for your help; it's much appreaciated.
