My grandson was arrested possible gah/abh offence (Police

This answer was rated:

My grandson was arrested for a possible gah/abh offence (Police have said from cctv that it was more of an unfortunate accident).
This happened on 17/12/2015 and he has continually been rebailed since.
However since 24/2/2016 he has not received any bail papers at all.
Today he has heard via his Solicitor, nothing from the Police that he is to be charged with ABH but no date given.
Is this really the correct procedure?? As a layman I find it unusual
Thank you for your time

Is there any reason you think it may not be?

Well if police retail to a future date surely there must be a bail form issued stating date to return etc
This has not happened since 24th February 2016

should read rebail

When am I likely to receive a final answer
No, not necessarily.They are free to rebail. There is no restriction on rebail. All the absence of bail papers means is that he cannot be punished for failing to surrender on a specific date.If they expect him to go in for charge then they will need to notify him of a date to attend or I suppose they could just send him a summons.There is no reason they cannot proceed in this though.Can I clarify anything for you?Jo
