hi there peeps so i got my court date yesterday and it was at the end of the 6 months the dead line was saturday but it got posted on friday so yeah ive had to wait the full six months which has been hellish,on the up side ive not long to go now before i can put all this behind me ,yes it will cost me a lot and i will be banned but im sick of this hanging over my head now when i say sick i mean im sick every morning with anxiety.i hope your all good btw and ill keep you posted on my fate
Jeez I can't believe they made you wait the full 6 months that is so crappy! Sneaky posting it the day before, I think that is really bad form as if you haven't had enough waiting and anxiety to deal with. Makes me sick also! People who got a court date quickly have had less waiting and anxiety, this is real head-f*ckery from the powers that be! I wonder if the judge will take this into account, ie: you have had an extra 6 month sentence, some other lucky f*er may have only had to wait 6 weeks. I expect they won't! Makes my blood boil!

Anyway on the upside at least you can have some closure soon (if they don't make you wait for another stupidly long time). Stay strong and yes please keep us posted on what happens, hope it is as good an outcome as possible for you! All the very best to you x

No his lawyer raised a debate and the judge accepted it so a date was set and it was just the judge the pf at debate the judge concede it was time barred and case was dismissed so he got away with it hope it’s not to bad for you
Is this something @Donwon could do ie ask a lawyer to raise a debate as it is right on the cusp of the time allowed/barred? It seems unfair that he has to get this land on him on the last day of the 6 months. Is this how it was for your son?

Yes we are in Scotland they took it the full 12 months he needs to phone a lawyer and ask if it could be time barred

Thanks a lot - so @Donwon get on the blower to a solicitor! Fingers crossed this is time barred as @Robbie19 says. Best of luck :)
ok so I've paid for a lawyer ill be speaking to him soon my court date is the 24 of this month, I feel the process wasn't done properly when i was arrested because i don't recall them filling in the mgdd form (do any of you recall it being filled in)also i want the custody footage. ps, i cant believe it went to the last day almost but maybe the police sent it to the cps a while ago and it was the cps that was dragging there feet, i hope every one is ok too :)

I waited 7 weeks this time last year.
It was the worst thing I think I’ve ever experienced. I really understand how you feel.
The police called me the day before my birthday. My blood came back on the limit so I didn’t lose my licence. I got lucky but taught me a lesson not to do that again. Best of luck.
Can I just ask how much had you smoked, how many hours before your bloods was taken
