We have spent the last 3 months waiting for the CPS to make up their mind if they were going to take over the case and prosecute Eleanor.
If they take over it and stop it then that's it that's the end of the road.
Last week the CPS said they were going to take over the case, but did not say if they were going to continue prosecuting or were going to stop.
And today came the good news. They have decided the case passed both the 1. Evidential stage and the 2. Public interest stage, of the Code for Crown Prosecutors.
My lawyer told me in person over the phone and we were overjoyed.
It's also good news because it means that I don't have to pay for lawyers anymore, the case will be prosecuted just like any other case and I will turn up at court as the victim / main witness.
It's going to be a good Christmas. Work well done.
It's been 12 months of hell and I am just a few more months away from clearing my name. We still don't know when a trial is, we shall see. We should know in January. A Plea and Case Management Hearing has been scheduled for January 24th, 2014.
Here is a copy of the letter from the CPS:
