I will be enter a plea on the 13th february 2015 - which will be a not guilty plea. However, can I see the evidence / prosecution papers before I enter my plea which is in 3 weeks time?
Thank you for your response.
Am I able to gather evidence and provide this to the solicitor, and could she / he still provide this to the CPS before the trial date?
Apologies, what I meant to say is my solicitor able to request the prosecution:
- request copy of phone records (i.e. I am aware that the consent is required from the claimant) if evidence / suspicion can prove the claimant has lied within their statement;
- request copies of their medical records;
I do not understand what you mean that there is no point to approach the CPS? I was of the understanding the CPS can terminate proceedings at anytime. Therefore, if further evidence becomes available.
I am aware of the Legal Aid process - and to the effect will not be entitled to such Aid. However, that is not my concern as I am prepared to incur the solicitor fees if my plea is 'not guilty'.
