understood, so how can I assist?
At this stage there is nothing you can do. You have been arrested, interviewed and bailed. The Crown Prosecution service will decide based on any evidence whether to charge and prosecute you.
If they do, then you would go to court, it would be Crown court based on the charges.
You would enter a not guilty plea and then case would go off for trail by jury.
The prosecution would put their case and evidence, your defence would put your case of consensual BDSM etc.
A jury would then decide which account to believe.
Did you not have a solicitor at the police station?
It may well be a case that no further action will be taken.
It is very much a case of your word against hers.
You would have made a statement in interview, ant physical evidence would come latter if you are charged.
If you raised that evidence in interview and gave names etc, they may well follow through and make enquiries that is part of the reason for police bail.
Yes it is bad. Consent can be given and minor injury caused, but there are limits. It will come down to a trial and the level of injury and proof as to who caused what.
Any knife injuries are dangerous and serious, this is the risk you take with these types of sexual acts.
You don t have to prove nothing, the prosecution has the burden of proof.
Possibly that is up to the CPS.
There is evidence, her statement of complaint, her injuries etc are all evidence. Simply because they differ form your account does not mean they do not count as evidence.
It really is a matter for the CPS to decide on, it is completely in their hands.
Your very welcome, I hope it all works out ok for you. Take care.
