They also charged me with 3 * influence witness, under s323(a)."

So 3 charges of influence witness?
@Jaywoo220 I had also noticed this, & it's a fair question since you wrote it ... You don't have to explain it here of course, but the information provided by various folk on this thread seems to only relate to one aspect, ie, section 10 of the Legal Profession Uniform Law (NSW) (Uniform Law)

Simply expression an opinion that you don't like does not make me a troll. Like I said, the standards you expect of others is different to the standards you apply to yourself.

The point Tim is making is that prior to being charged with intimidating witnesses you had reason to suspect that what you were doing might maybe well kinda be, u'm well you know? Maybe could be perceived as intimidation. Sure, totally understand you would never ever deliberately intimidate another person because you're so "naive".... But when you think about it, actually, yep, suppose that is one way of looking at it.

I'm still struggling to get the whole picture. But based on the various threads the story goes.... You are accused of something? You have CCTV footage that the cops want to help with their investigation? You're refusing to hand it over? You're innocent? so that footage can only help prove your innocence? But you refuse to hand it over?

And.... to complicate matters you've just thrown a few extra charges into the mix for good measure. But you're innocent of that too right? and your defense is that you didn't think it could be perceived as intimidation AND you have a tendency to write in the third person. That is your defence?

Rod mentioned earlier you 'could' write a letter to clarify. BUT I strongly advise against this course of action.

Sammy01, once again you do not know what you talking about and have your X and 0's out of place. The sunpoena stuff concerns other matters.

You are a troll.

Sorry my mistake, so this matter has nothing to do with the police wanting the CCTV and it has nothing to do with the security guards. Sorry, Hard to keep up sometimes.

Welcome to report me if you think I'm trolling. But I reckon the mediator is just gonna shrug because the advice I'm giving is accurate and supported by the other punters here, some of whom are soliciotors. You have some serious charges and this latest one comes with some serious jail time. If nothing else I strongly encourage you to seek legal advice from a qualified criminal law specialist. Sure, good idea to scope out suggestions here and ask opinions and this is one such example where what you did was pre-meditated. It would have been a bloody good idea to ask for opinions here first before posting those letters. However, I suspect you'd have done it anyways.

But as I have stated before, simply expressing an opinion that differs from your's doesn't make me a troll.

Just outa interest... I know you had absolutely no intention to intimidate those witnesses. But, do you think the recipients of these cease and desist letters maybe might have felt that the intention was indeed to intimdate? Are you able to see how simple it is to make that case?

Sammy 01 I do not care about you making comments it is just the value judgements you make about me. I am not perfect and make mistakes. How do you think I feel with all this going on?

This relates to police kicking in my front door due to a false breach of avo report made by the neighbours that I am suing and not being sure or not wanting out of spite to provide it to them since they put.me in hospital.

However, as noted by someone if I want to provide as evidence in my defence, it is required to be provided to them

I would be surprised if they get over the line with the charge. The offence is “An entity must not engage in legal practice in this jurisdiction, unless it is a qualified entity”. In my view, and it is only my view, what you done could not considered “engaging in legal practice”. The objective of the law is to protect the public from being represented by unqualified individuals. What you done wouldn’t fall within the scope of the offence in my view.
