    I just had a phone call off CID to tell me they've charged him (Charlie) with 8 offences (for my case) and he's going to court tomorrow. He'll also be back in court on Monday as that's when my niece's case goes to court.

    It has to go to Crown Court because one of the offences is attempted rape and then they'll marry up both mine and my niece's case.

    We're getting there slowly :)

    Thanks both :) I was worried as I haven't heard anything for a few weeks so was so glad to get this phonecall.

    8 offences though. Aside from the attempted rape I wonder what the other 7 are... assaulting a minor is probably one.

    Just hope for once that the justice system works and this is dealt with accordingly.
    Should be a lot more than a slap on the wrist and don’t do it again.

    Ife he goes to prison it'll be a life sentence :) He's 74

    Sadly he can still fight it. We've a long way to go before he's found guilty and sent to where he belongs :(

    Thanks both :D To be fair the CID/CPS/SARC etc have been great! I've read horror stories of victims not being believed or cases taking years but everything kicked off on March 28th 2010 and look where we are already!

    I couldn't be more pleased :thumbup:

    Thank you :) The only thing I'm not looking forward to is giving evidence because he's pleading not guilty. I hope I can get special measures put in place but it's not guaranteed :(

    It's up to the judge whether or not I will be allowed to give evidence via video link or with a screen up so I can't see him.

    I can ask, but I was told to be prepared for the answer to be no as it doesn't always happen.
