I received the phone call – my case had been dropped!
The CPS consistently failed to serve the correct evidence against me. Even at the first court hearing, there was missing paperwork. Directions and deadlines were overlooked – everything had gone quiet. I was reassured by my solicitor that this was completely normal! I was told that the CPS very rarely serve evidence in time and that we could use this to win the case. He advised that we take the case back to court to speak with the judge. I didn’t need to attend court.
My court hearing was today and I received the best phone call – my case had been dropped. Apparently the judge agreed with my solicitors and refused to give the CPS a second chance.
I couldn’t have done this without the help and support of M.A.J Law. The judge also awarded me costs, meaning I get some money back to cover my legal fees. To think I came so close to just pleading guilty. I’m still in shock and disbelief.
