Will he not disclose it?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I'm not sure that I believe what he is telling me, he has moved out, and it has take me a moth just to get him to let me see his bail sheet, also i dont even know the person was 15, that's just what he is telling me. he originally said they were 16..
Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.

In that case, there isn't any right to know the facts of the offence at this stage. He has no duty to tell you and the police will not.

However, you could always attend court and sit in the public gallery to ascertain what the facts are. I wouldn't necessarily take the crown's case at it's highest though. Allegations of Sexual offences are often a load of nonsense.

Can I clarify anything for you?

If you could just clarify what you mean by ' I wouldn't necessarily take the crown's case at it's highest though' he hasn't been charged as yet so I guess if I'm not entitled to know the facts then ill have to wait and see what the CPs decision is. I have asked him to let me speak to his solicitor, perhaps he will.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.

I wouldn't necessarily believe a word of it.

You can hear their allegations in Court. I would wait for the cross examination though. That is when the truth comes out usually.

Sexual offences are very easy to allege.
