Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.

What do you want to know about this today please?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
How do I approach the matter ? What will happen in the interview? What are the appropriate things things for me to say ?

Do you accept it?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Do I accept the offence ? Or the interview? I do not accept the offence, and I will be attending the interview because if I don’t I am to be arrested.

Ok. What is it you want to ask me in relation to this then?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
What do I do? I am completely innocent . Will it appear in my records?

Just an interview, no.

You just say your version of events. That is it. Answer the questions asked.

They will then take a view whether to charge you or take no further action.

You can take a Solicitor if you wish.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Last question; what advice do you have for me ? If they take further action, I plan to sue the person who accused me.

Ok, you can do that if you want for malicious prosecution but I dont think you would get more than £50,000 or so in damages.

Does that clarify?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Yes that clarifies. How much does it cost to have a solicitor present for the interview?
