Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know what was the nature of the harassment?
did you receive my answer xxx
Can you repeat it please?
ok well the nature of the harassment firstly was turning up drunk at my house banging and kicking my door then in emails insulting my 21 year old son who is a qualified nursery nurse saying he is a paedophile and looks at child porn then just constant emails telling me about his love life and then he sent a private message to a very old friend of mine saying I suggest you get you get yourself checked out corrinne has hiv x
Ok - how many incidents have there been in total?
it seems that he is obsessed with destroying me and not allowing me to have a life and because of the latest incident he has managed to destroy my relationship with my new boyfriend x over the years there have been several incidents of violence which have been dealt with by the police x and now he is starting all over again I have put him away at least 3 times before x but it was not until 2and a half years ago I managed to get out of our domestic and abusive relationship
Ok -what will happen is this.
When you go to Court you will be asked questions by the prosecution. You say what happened, when etc
You are then asked questions by the defence. It is that lawyers job to put your ex's case
Then if convicted he will be given a sentence.
The Prosecution are also likely to ask for a restraining order
This is an injunction to stop him contacting you.
If he breaches this order it is very serious and he is likely to go to prison
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
what do you think my chances of getting him convicted on the evidence that I have told you about and how can he plead not guilty when the cps and police have all the print outs of the emails and the face book message how does he think he can plead not guilty surely this cannot go in his favour
All the Court needs to be satisfied is at least 2 contacts
He will get a higher sentence by pleading not guilty if convicted afterwards
well one visit ten emails and one facebook message do you think he will get put away again
Yes I think that is enough for a conviction
thankyou so much will I be asked to have witnesses there to speak on my behalf aswell
Yes of course.
Can I help with anything else today?
But generally you will be asked to give your own evidence.
well that is good news because my best friend was here the day he came to my house and she has witnessed Christopher in the past when we were together x also will my son be asked to give evidence because of the email what was related to him
Ok - she can give evidence too
Can I clarify anything else for you today?
will my son be asked to give evidence because of the email that was send insulting him x
ok well what correspondence will I be receiving from the court between now and march I cannot afford a solicitor so how do I get my friend to be a witness and how will my son be confirmed as one aswell x
Well they need to give statements to the Police.
The Police should call as witnesses. But you don't need a Solicitor.
and will the police be asking me for witness statements or do they have to go to the police themselves
They need to go to the Police
oh okay x do you think with just me as a witness will be enough to get him convicted or do I stand a much better chance if I get my friend and son to be testify aswell
The more the better
But everyone needs to go to the Police and give a statement asap
okay thankyou x
