Would it be possible to tell me what you wanted to know about this
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what evidence do the police need?
any barrister can help me in the court ?
what can do now because the harassment has no witness ?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
They need a 'reasonable prospect of conviction' which usually means a greater chance that not. One person's word against another is not the best evidence. Testimony only can be very compelling or very tenuous. Jurors are generally becoming suspicious of even compelling testimony as we have seen far too many cases recently where 'compelling' witnesses were only compelling because they were skilled liars and that has an impact upon everybody.
A barrister briefed to prosecute can only present the evidence. There are no magic wands that make evidence stronger than it is.
One would not normally expect witnesses to a sexual offence can for the complainant but there are other things like recent complaint and also motiviation to lie.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Jo
