Kate's Hall's Stalking Ordeal

http://www.katehall.org/  This is now nearing the end of the year 2011 and during the next year my stalker will get out of prison once again.  This is a big worry for myself and my family because although we would like to be able to trust that we would get help from Fife police if needed, we have no trust in them at all and feel we can not ask for help even with a new law of stalking now being in force. I am worried that if I needed to ask for help that once again the blame would fall on me. I have had to go to a Lawyer to make sure that I have an order of protection in place for him coming out of prison. I  had to pay for a case he brought against me while he was in prison as he tried to take an interdict out against me. I had to defend my name,  if I had not it would have looked like he was being truthful when he was lying. I successfully defended this case and won. The court ordered all my costs to be paid by him.  That was two years ago and as he has not paid anything toward the costs I had to pay the lot. This is very unfair as the court does not seem to have the power to pursue this.  This has caused me financial hardship and no one is able to help me on this matter.

Kate Hall's Stalking Ordeal

 My ordeal started many years ago and still goes on to this day.  Having a Stalking Law in force in Scotland now is a help but as it is not backdated anything that took place before the law came into force is not counted.   On my birthday 26.11.2009 very early in the morning I was arrested by Fife police who said I was crying wolf by saying that things that I had reported were in fact my own doing.  I was remanded in Prison for a week and then 9 charges of wasting police time became 6 I got bail to wait for trial which was to take place in July 2010 but the day before it was due the Crown dropped all charges against me because there was no evidence against me.  I then went that day to the Scottish Parlliament to see if the above law passed to make stalking a crime as I had just been cleared of all my stalker had done to me again.

I may have been free from the police but I will never be free from the memory of that dreadful time and every birthday is a reminder.  I am going to spend nexy year 2012 making sure that the police in Fife are held accountable.   You can read this story in full on my webpage at http://www.katehall.org/                                                                                                                            

I can not help but think when my stalker gets out of jail in 2012 that I would not feel able to contact the police in case they again blamed me as they did before.
