The court case will still happen, you should attend and seek to be included to give evidence on how his actions are affecting you.
If he knows he is not to contact you, why is your number still stored on his phone?
Personally I do not believe it was a mistake, just a sneaky way to harass you, and leave himself with a way out if you made a complaint.
thanks for your quick response, what if they call me back and say there is not enough to charge him? Do I have a leg to stand on?
I am so proud of how I got over things and moved on and this was such a set back, I shouldn't care he has a new GF as I don't want him back but obviously it's not as easy as that!
Can I still push for a conviction even if the police dealing with it decide not to charge??
If the latest text was obviously for his new girlfriend then he did not have the intent to breach the order. If the police formed the view that there is no reasonable prospect of conviction then that may explain their reluctance to charge him.
It is notable that you appear to have no problem accepting that the latest text was meant for the other lady and therefore that it was directed to you in error.
The police have contacted and spoken to him about it, so he knows you are serious (for reporting it) and they are serious (for investigating it).
Besides, he only gets one go at an "accidental text".
[QUOTE=AsiaOilDude] You're a bit unclear. Are they nor proceeding with the original charge or just a new charge re the new gf text? I hardly imagine they'd drop the original charge because of the second text. [/QUOTE]
I agree. Also as PMCL has pointed out, he'll only get one chance to pass it off as a mistake.
