I have been arrested on suspicion of a historical crime 50 years ago and tho I had a solicitor present ate the police station under legal aid I don't know who to talk to about this situation as the legal aid solicitor can only help me AFTER I am charged sometime in the future. who can help my stressed out partner and me NOW.
I am innocent
who or what organisation is able to help me to prove my innocence now before they take me to court?
I am sorry but I know this and if you read my question you would have understood that I have a solicitor but cant afford the £150 per hour as I am a 73 year old pensioner and have no extra income. I was hoping you would be able to guide me to an organisation that can help.
I don't want to wait until I am charged and have a court date and minimum time to arrange my defence. nor do we need the stress of waiting to see what happens
Thank you for your clear and concise answer. I am on pension credit and live in Sapiston, near bury st Edmunds Suffolk but a lot closer to Thetford, Norfolk as I am near the border.
My solicitor seems very good but did not tell me I may get legal aid even tho I have not been charged. Is that so?
Thanks so far
For the attention of Alex HughesAs a matter of interest MCP law dealt with my first case and though in general the were all very polite and helpful when it came to my crown court appearance the Barrister they hired/used was ineffectual, did not read the previous evidence or notes and had the temerity during my defence to get angry over something he had not read. He then strode angrily across to me in the dock and demanded why I had not told him something in these notes. At the time I was distressed and could not think straight and did not even know I had been convicted and sent to jail, until the court bailiff alongside me told me so. for this reason I could not use or trust them again.I will contact Levy and see what they have to say. Thanks
Problem is if I give you an excellent rating I have to pay again and can't afford this
