Hi

Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help with this.

Why do you want these please?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

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.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Thanks.

You need to complete this form

http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/HMCTS/GetForms.do?court_forms_num=Ex107&court_forms_title=&court_forms_category=


And fax it to the relevant court centre to request a transcript.

You can also use this transcript service

http://mls.merrillcorp.com/home/services/tape-transcription

Thereafter.

Can I clarify anything for you?

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?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

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

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

You cannot force the council to hand the letter over at this stage. I suppose a court could direct it maybe but it doesn't really matter what the letter said.

The issue is what was said in court.

I suppose if the transcripts exist you can get a court seized of the matter to direct that probation hand them over but I would be amazed if they hadn't lost them. Probation are not the white heat of efficiency.
