I was taken to court for texting my ex-girlfriend. However I pleaded guilty on the first day as the prosecution said if I didn't that they would take me down the domestic violence route and also I was ill advised by my solicitor. Also my text messages were used as evidence in court but none of her messages were given in evidence. They cherry picked evidence and only showed what I had text and non of her texts. I also had phoned the Police to get my passport back off her and the Police said to text her and ask for it back. However this wasn't told to the court either and I also asked for the Police to attend the property and get it so I didn't have to go and they really didn't want to help. She started all this action against me as I had asked the Police to retrieve my passport. Basically I feel it was very one sided against me and I felt external pressure to plead guilty as I was so scared about being taken to a domestic violence court!! Can I appeal and how would I go about doing it. I pleaded guilty at Court when they asked how was I going to plead but I feel so bad for doing it as I know I was wrongly treated and not given a fair trial.
