Malicious Communications Act

Hate mail is usually anonymous, but if it can be traced the sender can also be prosecuted under the Malicious Communications Act 1988 which makes it an offence to send a letter or other article which conveys an indecent or grossly offensive message or a threat, or which contains information known to be false, where the purpose of sending it is to cause distress or anxiety

Fingerprint Evidence

  • A fingerprint is an individual characteristic, and as of yet no two prints have been found to possess identical ridge characteristics
