Thank you for your response. If they do try to investigate me for perverting the course of justice will all evidence such as the medical evidence taken from myself be sent off and taken into consideration?
Can I continue with the rape allegation if thwy do this?
I know he is saying he 100% didnt have anal sex with me when the medical evidence will prove he 100% did. How would this influence matters?
Would I be best to wait for the police to come to me or say I wish to pursue the claim now?
The officer told me she was obtaining these statements to see if he had said anything damning in his.
How do you mean by maintaining the falsehood? I havent said he did not rape me, I said I did not want the stress.
What reason do you believe they are obtaining these statements for and what so far could they potentially have to justify perverting the course of justice?
As I know my allegation is not false would it not be in my interests to continue with my allegation now before this opportunity is taken from me if they decide to charge me with perverting the course of justice?
The only evidence they have at the moment is my initial attendance at the police station, my 2 withdrawals and the 2 statements from my work.
He has not been interviewed at all. And I have never made any unfounded allegations before.
He told my partner that I performed an oral sex act on him and I did call him to tell him to stop lying about this, and if he did so I would drop the charges. (I had already dropped them at this point) and only said this to protect my relationship. It didnt change the fact he raped me but how would the police look at this if this is in his work statement?
How do you mean other allegations?
What type of things would cause them to charge me? Can my work statement be used against me?
No I have never made any other allegations. If in his statement he has said anal sex did not occur but that is what my allegation is based on where would this leave the police?
Is a situation likely to occur from what I have said where they pressure me to admit falsehood or instead pursue my allegation?
Why would point 1 not lead to a charge? Surely it would if they could get me to co operate and provide the medical evidence?
As I have not made any allegations to the police in the past (i do have cautions for violence and criminal damage from when I was 18, I am now 25), what do you think the likely outcome of this will be? Do you think it would be to get me to admit falsehood or proceed?
If he is denying the act, but medical evidence proves this then how can that not be sufficient to charge?
What do you think has led them to be concerned about my evidence? Why do you feel they have not gone for other evidence such as CCTV, witness statements etc?
Also how long is CCTV evidence available for typically in the UK?
How can he argue its consensual when he is saying anal never occured?
Do you not think they are obtaining the statements as it was mentioned in my withdrawal call and if they didnt, and an admission was made by him the police would be in trouble?
He told my partner oral sex occured in the club. My accusation against him is that anal sex occured which he is denying took place. He has said it was vaginal....So would this not lead police to want to investigate him?
My partner told the police I initially said I had slept with someone else, then rape. This was because I was stilll drunk/disorientated and didnt recall what actually took place until I saw the blood in my underwear. Could they charge me due to this?
How is he argueing consent when he is denying it occured?!
In most cases of perverting what evidence do they need? Admission of falsehood?
Yes he is saying vaginal, not anal. So basically him denying anal is not enough?
Because they havent even obtained CCTV etc I dont see where they are going with this.
Why are medical reports not that simple?
They have not obtained CCTV. They are only obtaining mine and his work statements currently which they have said is for admin purposes?!
They have told me they will have a decision in 4 weeks time due to their current work load. Once they have seen these statements what do you think they will say to me in 4 weeks time?
Oh i thought they mainly do perverting? Do you not think i would go to prison then?
what does NFA mean?
Sorry I am confused so if I maintain what I have said to date you believe it could be wasting police time but if I said I had lied, then prison?
But I am not lying, so I dont know what to do?
Does every woman who drops charges in rape cases face perverting? Why would you advise to do nothing?
Whats your honest opinion on my case? Why should I not ask to continue the charges at this stage?
But I dont understand why i shouldnt continue? How would the police now see this? Should i speak to the police about my concerns or not?
So if I wait for the police to come to me do you think its likely based on what I have said that it will be 1) dropped 2) I will be charged 3) I will be given the option to admit falsehood or continue.
What factors make you think I probably wont be charged and what should I say when they ask me my reasons why? What I have said so far, the stress etc
well it is due to stress but i dont know why they cannot accept this and leave me alone. What makes you think i probably wont be charged? I just want to live my life and forget about this but dont want that factor to have caused me to be in question. It doesnt seem fair.
Okay well I havent said anything other than the truth to you so surely I wont be? Will be with drawing twice warrant being charged?
Have you read everything I have discussed with Jo? Are you able to please give your opinion on what is happening?
It may be as I am stressed but I am struggling to understand what could cause them to charge me based on what I have said?
But Jo has said the things I have said wouldnt be enough so why is it a possibility?
If they did try to charge me with perverting would all evidence be obtained such as medical? Is my partner saying I initially said i slept with someone then raped enough to charge perverting? I said this as i was confused/ had not recalled all events and was prompted by the blood in my underwear
I believe they have pursued CCTV. If something damning was found would an arrest be made immediately?
Why not neccesarily? Also, when a victim withdraws in rape cases would it be probable that other evidence such as cctv would be pursued regardless?
Okay thats fine. I was just wondering if it would be typical for investigations to continue.
