To cut a long story short, the case dragged on for six months and it's been hell. There was strong evidence against me and evidence that might have supported me was never requested by the police nor viewed during the company's internal investigation and, due to the elapsed time, is no longer available. My barrister advised me that, in his opinion, it was unlikely we would win. Not good.
On the 19th of December, my trial began in Crown Court and went on for two days. It gives me very great pleasure to announce that the jury reached a unanimous decision that I am not guilty. Afterwards, my barrister revealed that he's believed I'm innocent right from the start.
Thanks to all of you who have sent messages of support. Freedom is a wonderful thing.
