Not sure, trying to help a friend, she made a statement on tuesday had to surrender passport and CPS are supposed to coming back with an answer on Friday ... does this look bad to you
Expert:  Jo C. replied 8 years ago.

Not necessarily.


It could have been that bad or they would have just held her in whist they got CPS advce. It really depends though on the fact as to how long this will take. It can take several months for a decision. That might just be that they are busy. Its not reflection on that case at all.
