How can I help with this please?
Ok. So what is your question about this?
What is the evidence that he was driving?
If he was not then I presume he has told them who was?
Where was he found in relation to the car?
How long after roughly?
Oh yes, but is never that simple.
I don’t know what the evidence is here but the fact that he was found a few streets away gives rise to an inference. Inferences are not enough but if they have other evidence at all it might be.
I would imagine they are trying to find eye witnesses who can put him in the car. If they can they could rely on that.
If not they will probably drop down on failing to stop and report.
Can I clarify anything for you?
If he didn't have a solicitor in police interview then probably they won't agree to act now because legal aid would not be in place.
Generally speaking they don't attend the bail backs now anyway.
They would attend for a private payer.
But you don't really need a solicitor for a bail back.
If he has been charged then he should not be bailed back to the police station.
Then they don't need to prove he was driving. Just that he was in charge.
They do seem to have some evidence that he was in charge otherwise there should not be a charge
It might not be enough.
If he has been charged then he should have a court date.
I'm happy to continue with this but please rate my answer.
If he hasn't been charged already then he may be either charged, NFAed or rebailed.
He could be either charged, bailed again or they could take no further action.
Well, there isn't really much benefit at bail back stage and it would rack up cost for him.
He shouldn't be interviewed at bail back stage.
No, as I said, he should not be interviewed during the bail back.
He will be given a court date to attend.
No problem. All the best.
