Hello, I am a solicitor with 20 years experience I will try to help you with this.
So this happened on 10th November, when did she go to the police? Do you live together and is the relationship continuing?
Were you in Scotland when this happened?
I am an English lawyer so my knowledge of Scottish law is poor but I should think that the general asnwsers will be the same here and in Scotland. When did she go to the police?
It is odd that she left it for a month. What you should do is stay calm and wait and see what happens. If the police contact you and ask you to come in for questioning you should make sure that when you go you have a solicitor. In no circumstance should you be interviewed without a solicitor. You are entitled to free and independent legal advice if you are to be questioned. Remember the prosecution must prove your guilt beyond reasonable doubt. In circumstances like these: end of a relationship, no witnesses, no injuries and a delay in reporting your chances of being found not guilty are good. You should stay calm and wait to see what happens.
They are too young to give evidence for something as minor as this. Keep the fb postings and that text it will completely undermine her credibility as a witness.
Ok all you can do is sit tight ans wait and see what happens. No 10 year old will be called to give evidence in a case like this and the likelihood is you will not get a conviction. Just make sure you have legal representation if the police contact you.
That is OK, I would be grateful if you would please take the time to rate my answer to you.
Her mother left the threat to destroy you message? Keep it just the same it is still relevant.
Don't admit anything, unless on advice by a lawyer. If you touched her accidentally then is neither an assault or a grope.
