No, I knew nothing about it until the guy told me.
He is distraught because he doesn't earn enough to pay £8,ooo and with his mortgage and outgoings this will ultimately bankrupt him and he says his solicitor told him it will take about a year to come to Court. Like many he doesn't have enough equity due to the market to borrow against etc. This is unbelievable, no wonder they kept it quiet.
....is due to appear in a Magistrate's Court and unless it is dropped presumably will go onto the Crown Court.
'That it is only an alleged incident etc'. This apparently means the Police aren't sure and will let a Jury/Court decide, despite the fact witnesses have been interviewed who said it was not true, so its not a straight forward 'Guilty Mi Lord!'
This guy has just had a bill for this 'alleged' incident at £8,000 for his legal costs and a demand for his car plus £900 in 4 weeks time to be paid to some agency he has never heard of before.
