"I have recently gone through a horrific 2 years of suspension with the police as a serving police officer due to a false allegation made by an ex partner. Today"  I appeared at Maidstone crown court on the charges of perverting the course of justice and assault. I was found not guilty, although I'm over the moon that the truth was seen, I would like to express my gratitude to Tim Bass who not only communicated in a professional manner on every level he also reassured and made me feel that I was being represented by a absolute professional who "knows his stuff".
