90 High Holborn

Dear Sir

I find myself in the unfortunate position of having to write to you with regard to a situation that I am in.
For ease I have enclosed a copy of my wife’s statement and also a copy of the letter to David Rendall MP. This should outline current events.

This “convenient” oversight by the police has had the following effects

  1. Had the evidence been taken at the time of the incident it would have been very difficult to charge me.

  2. My wife’s evidence should have been seen as strong and consistent as apposed to a potential collaboration. “She would say that, she is backing her husband”, which will haveto be the overriding question now in any judges mind.

This is not just my opinion this is the advice of London council Nick Dunham.

So because my conviction is spent in November (1 year conditional discharge) I have been advised to think “very carefully” about not just dropping things. If I loose and get an increased sentence of a fine, then that would not be spent for 5 years.

Obviously the police won’t investigate the complaint until after all court cases have ceased. This leaves me with the following choice.

  1. Withdraw the appeal and except a conviction for a crime I did not commit, paying for a dent I did not make.

  2. Fight, with a main witness whose credibility has been placed seriously into question by the police.

I think you will agree that with the police affecting my case this much should result in the case being withdrawn on the grounds that I cannot be guaranteed a fair trial with my evidence showing full strength and credibility.

Look forward to your reply and thank-you for your support.

Leslie Crumplin-Hill
