Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Does he have any previous convictions?Has he been interviewed? If so, did he admit the offences?Alex
Just to be clear, the Officer didnt have the computer/phone records when suggesting it would be non custodial?
Well the Army wont be told, that is for sure. It would be up to him to disclose it, but they wont be informed by anyone.
I agree, its likely to a non custodial sentence if it was only talking, never meeting and not prolonged contact.
But the Army wont automatically be told.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Sadly no way of influencing the decision. I also dont think you have any grounds for non conviction - its mitigation but its not a defence.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
This is a serious allegation, but people have been cautioned in previous history for rape. He may well attract a caution but I would be prepared for a conviction, that is only sensible.Can I clarify anything else? Alex
A specialist wont make any difference. It's fairly low level crime. He can pay for one of course, but he won't be able to recover that cost back.
Does that clarify? Alex
