Part 2 The Trail

Tell me what went wrong in this case? After over 2 years nearly 3 and over 7 Preliminary Hearings. The case was given a floating trail date. The wait and trauma of the Scottish Justice System was an unbelievable curse upon my children. The Defence ran circles around the Prosecution Team. Every time it went to court for a Preliminary Hearing there was a different Judge handing out sympathetic time to the Defence. The victims in this case had there lives put on hold as they were left living in Purgatory. The whole process can only be described as Inhumane.
Fact is my children became ill, their mental health suffered terribly, every time they thought they would get a date it was continued to the next Preliminary hearing.  My youngest became very ill and ended up in hospital with kidney problems as yet they are unsure what caused his illness, I just think his poor immune system could not cope with the mental cruelty of the Justice System. Throughout the court procedure it is the defendant in court who is seen and heard via his defence and our soft hearted judges listen to them.
When i would tell people about this whole procedure they just couldn't believe this possible. The Justice System wore my children down both mentally and physically.
On the day before the Trail they told us not to turn up. The same happened the next day. (Did you realise what you were doing to my children). On the third we were told to come to a meeting with the Deputy Advocate whom we had never met.

 She was given our case 2 weeks before the trail ???????
When we got there she was not there but the original Procurator Fiscal ?????
He did not really seem to know why he was there either or did he?

 We went over the case he told us how I would be ripped to pieces in the witness box and how the Defence would go after my youngest ( due to his vulnerability, mental health problems caused by physical and sexual abuse ).

The next day we were told not to turn up but meet the Deputy advocate again the following day. We were meant to be at court giving our evidence what in God's name was going on hear?

 We were told he had made a plea ?

 Our hearts lifted.

 We were ecstatic could this finally be The End!
