I've been rebailed 3 times now since 31st Jan of this year,

Customer Question

Hi, I've been rebailed 3 times now since 31st Jan of this year, of course I am worried but want not to be rebailed again, is it common to get rebailed this many times, somebody has told me it's because the police know I'm guilty and are building a case against me, your advice would help thankyou

They can actually bail you as many times as they like although if it is an offence which would normally be tried in the magistrates court, it has to be in court within 6 months. This is most minor offences and traffic offences.

Other than that, they can keep bailing you.

It usually happens if they need time to gather more evidence.

I imagine it is not the answer you wanted but nonetheless, that’s the position.

Can I clarify anything for you?
