Hello what is the claim for?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I made an allegation against my husband that he picked up a knife to assault me
for which he was arrested. I withdrew my allegation the next day but CPS has charged him.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
In the statement that the police officer took from me when they responded to my 999 call, I also said he tried to hurt me the previous day and put his hands around my throat. He has been charged on these 2 counts.
