This is a case that involves withdrawing charges of stalking and using carriage service to harass.
His ex-partner made a statement to the police alleging that our client had been stalking and harassing her by sending a high volume of emails, text messages, and phone calls. She provided to the police copies of emails and text messages sent from our client which were said to number over 150 in the space of two weeks.
During conferencing with our client, the police brief which included statements and exhibits provided by his ex-partner were carefully examined. Text messages and emails were downloaded from our client’s phone which showed that his ex partner had been engaging in a conversation with our client, and that the texts, emails, and calls had been going both ways. These materials were presented to the prosecution along with written submissions on why the charges could not be made out at law, and why they should not proceed with prosecuting this matter.
