Reported by a McKenzie Friend:
Brian Pead aka William Freeman had no representation.
The case brought before him is ‘impersonating a barrister’ on I believe the 13th of May. Mr Freeman told the judge that he had been moved to 8 prisons in 11 weeks.
For the last 11 days he has not been able to access his money which is in the amount of £400 in his prison account.
He has not seen any of his legal papers because of the ‘ghosting’, i.e. moving him from prison to prison, and would find it difficult to defend himself for this reason. But he did indicate that he does want representation from Imran Khan Solicitors and has been trying to contact them to let them know this.
The court said that at this point in time there is nothing to suggest that Imran Khan Solicitors have accepted representation. Therefore they have scheduled the next hearing of this case for 10th November 2014. A pre trial hearing is scheduled for 17th October 2014 in the Crown Courts Cambridge, where the defence statement is expected to be served.
Mr Freeman asked that the case be moved to the Inner Crown Court London and that the judge allow more than the scheduled 2-3 days for the hearing as he has some 12 witnesses to call. The judge suggested that the witnesses would not be relevant unless they were present on the day in court (13th May) when the charge of him impersonating a barrister was committed.
Meanwhile, could you maybe phone HMP Thameside and ask about William Brian Freeman’s [A9705DE] access to money, phone and visitors’ list? http://www.hmpthameside.org/contact.php: 0208 317 9777.
