My son crashed his car on 15/12/2017 due to driving under the influence of alcohol. When the police arrived he was outside of the vehicle, not near the car. He was taken to hospital and had blood taken. A few days later he gave a `no comment` statement at the police station, they could not arrest him with drink driving as they had no proof he was actually driving the car. Two week later on 17/12/2018 the police turned up at our home and gave my son his toxicology report which said the amount of alcohol in his blood. They said he was being charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and this would now go to court. He was given no charge sheet etc, only the toxicology report. My question is, he has still not heard anything from the CPS or the police regarding any dates. As this would be a summary case is there a length of time that a date must come through, for instance should he hear within so many months? He is waiting to join the Royal Marines and obviously cant until this is sorted.
