I'm trying to get this information for a friend. She was breathalysed and found to be over the limit, the day after being out the night before. This was over a year ago, and she has attended court twice. The first time there was no time for her case to be heard, so it was postponed for 6 months, then the second time the police officer didn't turn up.
She has another date for a couple of weeks time, but had a bereavement last week of her significant other, and she is concerned that she just isn't strong enough at the moment to take the stand, which she would like to do, so therefore I was wanting to know if she can ask for a postponement until she feels she can cope with it better.
She is generally a strong articulate woman, but is obviously devastated at the moment with the loss of her partner.
