What would you like to know about this please?
Well, there isn't a public interest in prosecuting any domestic. They are all a waste of time and money.
But the current wisdom is that this is in the public interest and they will proceed.
They are listening to her side of the story because the law compels them to do so. That doesn't mean you will be convicted but that is a matter for the court not the police.
I'm not quite clear what the allegation is against you.
I suppose she is saying that you accessed her computer without her permission?
Well, whether she acted unlawfully is not the issue here. The issue here is whether you did.
It might be that you can use some of this in your defence but it is not more than that.
Well, as I said, domestics are not in the public interest. They are all a waste of money in my opinion. The criminal courts shouldn't be dealing with people's relationship twaddle. But they are.
Yes, it is mitigation. It is just not a defence necessarily.
Well, you deny doing it without her permission so that is a defence.
But you are trying to raise essentially the argument that she should not have complained because she has misbehaved too. That is not a defence.
I can't really say what you are facing from this information. There's just not enough here to comment.
They will take into account mitigation. The only problem here is that your mitigation might not be accepted essentially because she called the police first.
If it is the computer misuse act only then the sentence will not be substantial. Probably only a fine or a low-level community order.
The risk would be if they used more serious charges.
