Dec - Crown ran out of witnesses today so got an early mark!
OP - a lot of misinformation (unintentional and well meaning no doubt) and partial assistance in this thread. As you might have guessed I'm a lawyer. Send me a PM if you like with your phone number and I'll give you a call to have a chat about your situation. I'm a little busy at the moment but could call you during the lunch adjournment one day this week.
