He found the cs gas canister whilst fishing with a freind,and admits he had it in his flat in hertford,they have charged him that he had it in the borough of hillingdon.thatis the police station he was taken to. He also told them he tried to hand it in to the police station in hertford but it was shut,he has statements to back this up from 3 people.
Hello he found it on the 24th july,and was foundin his flat two weeks after this date.
He tried to hand it in that day,but hertford police station shuts in the evening.he did not want it,but did not want to leave it bye the river so that children would find it.How does he stand that it was in his flat and that the charge sheet says in the borough of hillingdon that is over 4o miles away.he has got three staments that he has given to the police that he tried to hand it in.
I just asked him,he is in court on the 15th oct,not crown court,he wants to know when he is asked how do you plead to the charge of ( possession of a cs gas canister in the borough of hillingdon ) does he say guilty or not guilty as he was not,it was found in his flat.
So on the day can he get the charge changed and if so would they re arrest him or will they just change it on the day,as he wants the court to know that he was not carrying it around as he did not want to,but it was in his flat until he had chance to hand it in.
Thank you,once thy have changed the charge sheet and he pleads guilty will they still transfer to crown court,he also has got to go to hillingdon court and he lives in hertford and the cs gas was found in his flat in hertford,will they transfer it to st albans crown court? thank you for your answer's so far.
Would you advise him to see a solicitor before the court date? to gain further advice.
