Email from 2019

Dear Mr Daugherty,

I thank you for your mail as below. I note that we dealt with a matter for you back in 2009 and that you have previously raised issues about that and those complaints have been fully dealt with. There is nothing further that my firm can help you with.

Dear Mr Daugherty,

Original information

The link below produces a letter from Rowes Sparkes, who supplied the duty lawyer on the day I was arrested.

There is every indication that this lawyer didn't take much notice of me, or what was being said. The following points need to be made

He took my tape of the police interview and I later found out that Rowe Sparkes had lost it. They acted as though they had never had it - no apology

I include these links above on this law firm as some sort of catharsis.

There are some relevant points. Rowe Sparkes are accused of paying wages below the national minimum.

As implied above, the other party in my case was working as a paperboy and you can bet a pound to a penny that he was being paid less than the minimum wage. This would have presented an obstacle to me constructing a defence because his employer would be reluctant to give details of his employment, precisely because the employer would have been breaking the law by paying such low wages, and presumably paying no insurance etc., etc.

Rowe Sparkes complain about not receiving a reply to their correspondence on this matter. Well I am unhappy about not receiving a reply to my correspondence with Sparkes Rowe on my matter.
