Hello have you entered any plea so far?
I have been asked to look at this.
What is the nature of the criminal damage?
Why did you move it?
I'm not sure if you are asking whether you can plead by post? If so, you cannot. You are on bail and will commit an offence if you do not attend.
You can plead and use the duty solicitor to mitigate for you or you can represent yourself.
You are right to plead guilty though. On these facts you would be convicted.
It is a shame the police didn't offer you a conditional caution although I suppose they would argue that you hadn't fully admitted the offence but it is not the best justification.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Yes, you will but it is better to do it through representation.
You could hand up a letter I suppose. It isn't really proper to do that but you never know what Magistrates will allow. You still carry the risk that you will say something aggravating though.
