Credible evidence gets convictions

If you have sufficient and credible evidence, the Crown Prosecution Service will take it seriously and, if you have a case, will get convictions.

The Crown Prosecution Service website is a mine of information about all forms of crime and sets out in great detail what has to be proved by prosecutors to get a conviction. It gives lists of examples and details the issues prosecutors should take into account when deciding on criminal charges. If you want to make a case and make sure you understand what’s required in terms of evidence this is the place to go. It’s really useful for cases such as stalking, cyberstalking, domestic abuse, and harassment. Understanding how your case will be looked at by the police and CPS will help you make sure you provide the kind of evidence that’s required.
