Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
If this is just for the assault then no.
The Police will take a statement and decide whether to prosecute.
The Crown Prosecution Service then take over the prosecution of the case.
Your son does not need a Solicitor as it is not he who will end up as the Defendant.
He will be looked after by the CPS and witness care
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
