Can anyone help please.....
Have a friend who to cut along story short, was being harrassed the police issued a harrassment order against perpetrator. he then makes a statement saying she was abusive to him. after him being abusive and admitting driving in front of her car and putting her and her child in harms way, she did in deed in her victim statement say she had said "do not flump with my family again, and she called him scum once. she now finds herself facing an interview and possibly court.
she made a vicitim statement (which the police said she did not have to initially), and was quite distressed when interviewed, she finds her statement to be incorrect and police have been informed and doen nothing.
I have a few questions for you.

1 Can they use her victim statement against her?

2 she informed police her statement was wrong when she received it, nothing has been done.

3 whilst having the harrassment order the harrasser, harrassed her again, she was told by one pc, she was over reacting, she has since iformed a seargeant and an inspector,still nothing has happened.

be very grateful for some legals to get on board

Hi Gail#

Sorry, i seem to have the sequence of events wrong, but anyway, the quick answer to your question is Yes, a signed (Sec 9) Witness statement can be used in evidence.
