  • bring a Private criminal Prosecution, need help with charge sheet

    My ex business partner changed all the emails and passwords to the business social media pages which generate most of the business revenue. denying access to this by the business. She did this whilst she was a director of the business when she knew that she was going to be removed from the business for misconduct.

    She then used the platform to instruct customers not to order any products from the official website or email marketing campaigns as this had been hacked (which was not true of course). However because social media was our main customer communication method, they believed it and stopped ordering.

    I've reported this to the police but they have so far failed to investigate this and Im running out of time to bring charges (6 month rule) therefore i need to bring a private prosecution, but i don't know the correct charges to use. could someone help me so i can prepare the charge sheet and lay it to the courts before it is statute barred? below are my choices.

    Fraud act 2006 sect 4 (1) Abuse of Position in changing the passwords
    Fraud Act 2006 sect 2 False representation in posting communication posing as the official company and broadcasting false information to cause loss to the business.

    or do i use these charges

    Computer Misuse Act 1990 sect 3 (1) and (2b) deliberately and covertly changing the passwords and denying rightful access to the owner
    Malicious Communication Act 1988 sect 1 (1a,iii) in wilfully broadcasting information which she knew not to be true with the intent to cause harm

    please help, Im not a solicitor, just an ordinary person...
