Do you realise that she would have given an ABE interview then which would have been videoed?

 

The police would not have been able to influence that.

can i sue the police because 2 professors defence and prosecution said they were leading questions and police statement was changed which ipcc have upheld my complaints if police say they was wrong doing. i lost my job suffered depression and was put om bail for 1 year 2days before trial it was thrown out no evidence. to which will be my second complaint which the ipcc is dealing with now. why did i get charged in the first place i shouldnt of.
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 8 years ago

No.

 

ABE interviews are not bound by the rules of evidence. All leading questions do in an ABE interview is create a situation where the answers may not be reliable.

 

You do, however, have a very good case against your daughter who is the real culprit in this case. You cannot blame the police because she made a false allegation against you though.

 

Lots of innocent men are regularly charged with sexual offences. You were charged because your daughter made a false allegation which is not really the fault of the officers.

 

Also, this would not have been thrown out for no evidence. There is evidence. She made an allegation. Many convictions are obtained on that evidence.
