My ex smashed my windows admitted it in interview, but now in court he says not guilty. What will happen?

4th Apr 2018

He smashed my windows because he thought I was in here with amother man. Lots of text prove this. I believe he is saying he thought I'd taken an overdose. The police told me he admitted it they also got his blood from the scene but in court he pled not guilty. What will happen?

    If he has admitted damaging your windows in interview without lawful excuse then having pleaded not guilty the case will be adjourned to trial and it shouldn't take long for a court to convict him.  You may have to come to court to give evidence about the damage and what you saw, although a decision will be made whether your evidence is contentious or not.  The text messages will be evidence to show motive.

    If he has put forward a lawful excuse in interview ie. because he thought you were suffering an overdose then the prosecution will have slightly more to do - your evidence and the text messages will try to prove unlawful motive, and then the Magistrates' will decide whether or not the case is proved.

    Hope this helps a little.
