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.
