Thanks for that and the background. What is your question about this please?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Will he need to hire solicitor now or what il after August and see what response h gets from his meeting with the local solicitor&
Expert:  Ash replied 9 months ago.

He can wait until the first Court appearance. it may be that in due course the CPS decide to drop the case and take no further action

But he can wait until then as he may be entitled to legal aid. He would get it on the merits test, but there is also the financial test
So he can either do it now, or probably better to wait

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
