My Godson was charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice. Basically, he gave a false name and address to the police. He pleaded guilty and was released on bail. I am informed that in order to convince the Procurator Fiscal that there would be no further point in continuing the action against my Godson, a medical report would be useful in order to show that the lad was acting out of character. Exactly what would we need to show the Procurator Fiscal? Is there other information that he should present that would help his case? My Godson is now completely reconciled with his family and is anxious to do the right thing as far as the court is concerned.
