After several months of intensive work, I have finally finished writing The Dark Side. It has been the most difficult journey of my life taking me back to heart of my trial and the absurd direction it took. There have been several occasions when I thought of giving up, but the investigation I conducted into my case has meant that the Criminal Cases Review Commission is now considering an application so I can finally get to the Court of Appeal. This centres around several pieces of new evidence that cast doubt over the safety of my conviction in their own right, and also show that the judge’s summing amounted to a misdirection. I have finally managed to overcome the unforgivable barriers of the Criminal Appeal Act 1995 and hope that my conviction will be set aside not only for being unsafe but also because I have proved that I am not guilty of assaulting my assailant back in 1997 as I tried to arrest him.
