My son attended for a voluntary interview then we were visited by police to tell us they are reporting him for summons. Will he definately get a court date or will the court review first?
Police told us CPS had decided there is enough evidence to prosecute (baffled by this evidence thing think they only have 1 young boys word against another, 10 and 11 at time 2.5 years ago). So to clarify police will do report for summons which we will get in the post. We will go to youth court, will the CPS review the case before he has to plea? Will our defense solicitorget to see the evidence before the court date? Thanks
He is 14, was 11 or 12 at time of allegation probably just 12
Will our solicitor be able to ask the CPS to review before the day in court or have to wait till the day. Also is there a chance that when the police came to say they were reporting they were hoping for my son to admit to the allegation, just wondered why they did not just phone me. Also is there a chance they could have left our house and decided not to take it any further even though they said they would? I have been told they can be quite cunning. Our legal adviser was sure it would go to no further action after the interview. Thanks
My son is only 14 and the last thing we want is for him to get a criminal record. He has never been in any trouble of any sort before, to is doing really well at school expected to get A's in his GCSES. He wants to go to university he is ambicious and a lovely boy we just can't believe this is happening due to another boy telling lies. Social services were contacted by the police who closed the case after a phone conversation with me. Hes not guilty and if he has to plea in court we are worried it could all go badly as it has so far. It seems so unfair to put him through all this for an allegation 2.5 years ago and both boys were so young. Sorry for the rambling thanks.
