Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Jo C, I’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.

People are not usually found guilty if there is no evidence but there will be evidence.

If the complainant gave evidence then that is evidence.

Can I clarify anything for you?

No one saw anything happening its been 5 against 1 so what I'm saying is why cant we be witnesses for him

You really don't need a phone call and it will rack up costs.


If there is a complainant who says this did happen then I'm afraid the jury just believed her and not him.

Even though there were no witnesses to say they saw it happen

So so far this has cost me £49 and as I expected everyone believes her over him ,that's typical of everyone in today's society, thanks

You have actually been waiting less than 10 mins.

This is not a chat service.

I am not going to be able to tell you that you can appeal on the basis that you are not happy with the verdict.

She made an allegation. Jurors are entitled to believe that. Otherwise there would be no point in prosecuting.

Ok so no phone call no £44 charge then

I'll rate your answer and apologise for being very grumpy as you can imagine I'm very upset, once again sorry .

No problem. I understand.

Some of these prosecutions are ridiculous.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I have refused to pay for the phone call which I didn't have so I'm prepared to pay the£5 fee required but not the£44 you want for a call that never happened

You shouldn't be charged for the phone call as it wasn't made.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Well I was all at the cost of nearly£ 50 in total
