Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
Sorry to say but if there was a requirement to wear a mask or leave and you were told to leave, but dod not do so for 5 minutes then the offence is made out.
Many people think they can stand and argue the point raypther than simply doing as instructed and leave.
The consequence of that is court action.
I assume the PCSO was in uniform as they normally are, so would clearly be seen as a PCSO, and not someone impersonating a PCSO.
Sorry call offers are auto generated from the site, not from me. I am currently unavailable for calls, but more than happy to continue here.
If you are to to leave, a person should turn around and do as they are told and leave. Not stay and argue the toss.
Once the officer asked for your details then they should have been given, from your account t above it looks more a case of you were told to leave and refused, were then asked to supply your details or be prosecuted only then dod you decide to leave rather then supply your details as required.
You can certainly enter a not guilty plea and argue the case in court at a trial. You could say you could not clearly hear because of the mask, however I think it unlikely the court would find in your favour but nothing stopping you.
A person does not have to say they will not leave, there actions are enough to prosecute. When told to leave they should do so straight away.
