Were you speeding?
Are you charged with speeding or failing to identify?
Yes, so is this a charge for speeding or failing to identify or both?
Or a S172 form?
What I need to know is what stage this has reached now.
What is the document that you have received most recently?
Did they set aside the finding?
So did they set aside the finding?
It is really possible to advise on this information.
If the stat dec was successful then they would normally summons afresh for failing to identify and speeding if they are not out of time.
If they just reopened the case then they could rely on the summons already laid. That might be what is probable since there is a fresh hearing later this month.
They would not normally issue a fresh S172 form.
If you have said that it could be one or other of you then it is possible they could try to investigate which of you is the driver. There is case law that compels them to but they do not normally do so.
I don't think they can be investigating you for perverting on this information. There just plain isn't a lie.
No they will probably pursue you for failing to identify.
They are not going to reissue the conditional offer now.
If they do charge you with speeding alone then you could plead guilty even though you dispute it. This is not a S172 form. People can plead guilty for any reason they like. What they cannot do though is mitigate on a false basis.
People plead to offences they don't accept all the time. That is what a plea bargain is.
Yes, but you couldn't have received the conditional offer because then you would have to fill out the S172 form naming the driver which you cannot do because you are not sure.
Well, it can be dropped for any reason they like but they are only likely to accept it if you offer a plea to speeding.
The total sum will probably decrease because you won't be paying the costs of a trial in absence.
