The stress of the last few years is finally beginning to subside.
I would like to thank you and your team for the hard work you have put in and the consideration you have given me. I do not believe I could have wished for better representation.
Please pass on my thanks to all those who have been involved, especially to Michael Skelley who did a sterling job on the day in front of a Judge who gave every appearance of being somewhat hostile. Certainly very much less than sympathetic, shall we say!
Please also thank Joanna who provided excellent support to both myself and to my wife.
The outcome was without doubt the best that I could have hoped for under the circumstances and that was entirely due to the outstanding representation I have received from you and your team. Indeed, I am mildly surprised that there was no Community Payback order included in the sentence which I had been fully expecting.
