Given my financial circumstances, can I qualify for Legal Aid?
Last September I was "framed for stalking". I was pursuing £6,500 and a new lap top that a business associate had ran off with. At the time I thought I would not qualify for legal aid to defend this criminal charge but recently I have had second thoughts. I believe my personal financial position is open to interpretation, as I have explained earlier.
Yes, but no date yet set for trial. Trouble seems to be with fact that I complained about "her"cop intimidating me. Then he got convicted of a driving offence, getting a block on his police service record so I guess his work mates have closed ranks to reject my complaint and they will not accept defence evidence that is available for them. Like how the suspect at first asserted there was no new lap top in business. Then changed her statement saying she gave it back to me and then she went into store where I had bought lap top using my Business Bank card and she tried to obtain a receipt for lap top in her name, around the same date as I was being charged with "stalking". Challenged on this misrepresentation the suspect alleged to police that she had simply gone into store to ask why she had been asked to sign her name on original receipt. police have original receipt and there is no signature at all on it. I have just discovered suspect used to work for Masonic movement as an Escort so she will have influence over police.
I do not "earn" anything from the business, allowing my sons to make the business work.
No I receive £10,868 of a state pension each year.
The business does make money but since I have had to sign an agreement to give my wife £400,000 cash settlement for a divorce, and in return she gives the matrimonial house to the company the company is having to increase borrowings from the bank. This will leave our sons working to pay off the loan. Therefore it has been agreed that I can take no cash out of the business because of this new debt.
Legal Aid has not been refused, since I have not asked for aid yet.
The pressure on me to not take anything out of the business comes from my two sons who are directors of the business and have taken over the day to day work.
