I don't know.that's why I have instructed a barrister at £2k. I didn't know had missed my case as originally the DC inspector was telling me when to go to court. I went to court the first time and they said I had to come again. I waited for DC o Hare to tell me when.~It had been so long that I asked some ADVICE AND FOUND OUT that I had missed my court dates.its ok. I will just go with the barrister.I was told that a solicitor could help but thanks for your help.
