I haven’t really been posting much but the Norfolk Police have been slowly making progress with Norman Fowler, conman extraordinaire! The Sergeant dealing with my case has now crimed my report as a fraud and Norman Fowler will be arrested in due course – so it’s nice to see that something is being done.
However, after telling someone about the progress I had made with the Police / Norman he replied with the following message:
About bloody time, maybe if action had taken place earlier, the prevention strategy of the policing policy would have been seen to work and what I suppose will now be police time, effort and valuable resources wasted
Unfortunately I have to agree with the comments made but some of you might be asking why, especially now the Police are doing something. Well, there are a few reasons:
- I won’t be getting my equipment back. (Get over it mincer!)
- An investigation along with court case is a waste of time and money – it’s pretty evident that Norman has done what he’s done so many times in the past again.
- If Norman is taken to court, found guilty, convicted of another string of offences then he might end up in jail. Although this may seem like “justice”, it’s only going to cost money to keep him in jail.
In my next blog post I will be talking about a similar case where Norman Fowler was found guilty in court and convicted about 6 years ago. Norman Fowler was also ordered to pay compensation to the victim and it will be interesting to find out how the repayments went, but also how the victim felt about the treatment from the police and the way the case was handled by the courts and if they have faith in the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) or the Criminal Justice System (CJS).
