Thanks for your reply.
The information they gleamed was from the victim's sister-in-law who accessed a Facebook activity report. They have not got any independent information?? Also, they claim I accessed it 25 times in one day. That certainly didn't happen. I can only think that it stayed logged-on on my phone but I can't prove this very well.
Can you clarify what you mean about the CPS considering points? They wouldn't care about the abuse of process and would just run with it?
It is domestic nonsense and, whilst I am hugely remorseful, shouldn't have got this far. My thoughts were that a letter of apology might fit a CR. The DI (CID are investigating this) doesn't seem to be backing down on the abuse of process aspect. My job is at risk from all of this so want to cover all the avenues.
Since this happened last Autumn, we have spoken again and I genuinely believe that she does not want to pursue a formal complaint anymore.
She has said that she has tried to withdraw the complaint but that CID have said they have sufficient evidence and would run it victimless.
CID are dealing with it because I am a serving police officer. I don't think I am being dealt with very fairly. Yes I have done wrong - at a tremendously stressful and hard time - but I am not criminal. I did it to check on the status of our house that she was still living in. I didn't stalk her.
I stand to lose my job from all of this.
Thanks for your thoughts.
They aren't looking at stalking - they are looking at a computer misuse act offence. Surely this isn't aimed or designed for social media stuff - where such minor things have occurred?
Thanks for your advice.
