Justice tempered with mercy...

So the Police have been continuing investigation following my complaint to the relevant professional standards department. I only find this out this week and it's a nice Christmas present.

I also get some more information, which is also pleasing to see exactly how hard the Police have been working.

I maintained that the allegations were false throughout - and I could prove it. And, from my first interview I cooperated fully with Police, supplying alibi information at each interview, ensuring my side was strongly put, jumping through any hoop requested etc. And the Police, finally, checked out my alibi information.

Going through the charges:

1) Rape of a 37 yr old woman in Kettering on 16 June 2016

I was provably in Manchester on this date, staying in a hotel due to a work commitment. I was booked into the hotel on 15 June, and left on 18th. My Google location tracking confirms that I did not leave Manchester, and the company were able to confirm my presence in Manchester, on CCTV, at the exact time I was alleged to be in Kettering. Also, Police ANPR had no sightings of my vehicle travelling to or from Kettering.

2) Conspiracy to commit Rape against a 37 yr old woman in Kettering on 20 June 2016
3) Conspiracy to commit Rape against a 37 yr old woman in Kettering on 21 June 2016

These two charges were more difficult to show an alibi against, as I was off work on those days. However, I was able again to rely on Google location, which showed me at home all day on both days. I also have Samsung "Smart things" which agreed with my Google data, as the Smart Hub did not see my phone leave the house during those two days, and again Police ANPR had no sightings of my vehicle travelling to or from Kettering.

The Police did other checks, of course. They checked with my Cellphone provide where my phone was, and checked with my Internet Provider if my broadband was in use. They checked my landline to see if I had made calls from it on the relevant days. They checked transactions with my Bank - it's kinda hard to get to Kettering without a car and not leave some trail of transactions. They also used CCTV and computer Facial Recognition to check if my face was captured anywhere in Northants on the dates in question.

Finally, they checked both my and her phone(s) to see if there had been any of the alleged communications between us - there hadn't

As a result of these checks, the Christmas present I got from an Inspector in Kettering yesterday was that this matter is not merely discontinued, it is now recorded as "No Crime". Additionaly, and for obvious reasons, the allegation made against me while I was in my cell at HMP Hewell, waiting to be released was also recorded as "No Crime". My legal advice is that, as my Complainant has therefore not made a valid complaint of Rape, she is not entitled to anonymity. Nonetheless, I am not going to identify this woman, and herein comes the issues.

My accuser has significant mental health issues. This has been obvious to me throughout, and has been confirmed by Police. This is especially clear to me given some of the prurient details of her allegations, which bear no resemblance to either my sexual preferences, my intimate anatomy or my physical capability.

And, following my release, the Police made a appointment to meet her, her CMHT and her current counsellor, to let her know that this was being discontinued. But that meeting never happened, because she tried to take her own life....

Fairly clear, then that her mental state is fragile to say the least. But, at the same time, she has made some very serious allegations against me which have caused me significant issues. And therein lies the dilemna, So do I continue to assist that she is prosecuted, drop the allegations, or find some middle ground...

I'm going to give this some thought
