I was recently coerced via threats of violence against myself and my children into allowing someone to voice record me make false statements of abusing my children. This man is a substance abuser and can be very dangerous. At the time, I was in fear for my life and thought only to escape the immediate threat. I thought that if worse comes to worst and the false claims were ever investigated that, at least, there would be nothing to discover as my children (toddlers) are well loved and cared for. The person who did this made me consent to the recording. He then sexually assaulted me. There were other people present in the house who are too afraid to corroborate this and therefore, it seems that police can't press charges at this stage. No doubt I need legal advice but I am also making a formal statement to the police about the death threats / assault / sexual assault and concern about his threats to blackmail me with the voice recordings. Have you any general help? Many thanks.
