I was sentenced to 3 years with a guilty plea for benefit fraud and identity theft. the investigator from the benefit office stood up at my sentencing without being sworn in and told the judge I broke my bail conditions and sent another letter under the stolen identity. I was given an extra 6 months for this. This was untrue and I have requested copies of this letter and I can not get a reply from the council.
Is this the right course of action? Once I have the transcripts is there anyway to force the council to give me a copy of the letter?
I don't know if this matters but i did once have a copy of the transcripts from my appeal but i gave it to my probation officer. I moved counties so i moved probation offices. The transcripts i had given my original probation got transferred through with my file and my new probation won't give them back
