The case of Harry Dunn’s alleged killer is set to be heard at a UK court for the first time, the Crown Prosecution Service has said.
In a statement confirming the court date for Anne Sacoolas, the CPS said: “A hearing has been scheduled for 29 September at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.
“We remind everyone that Mrs Sacoolas has a right to a fair trial and there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice any proceedings.”
It has not been confirmed whether Sacoolas’s attendance at the hearing is required.
That was postponed to allow “ongoing” discussions with the legal team of the US national, the CPS said.
Sacoolas, the wife of a US diplomat, is accused of causing Mr Dunn’s death by dangerous driving after a fatal road crash outside the US military base RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire on 27 August 2019.
The 44-year-old had diplomatic immunity asserted on her behalf by the US government and was able to leave the UK 19 days after the collision.
The Dunn family has said they would not be commenting on the case until the conclusion of criminal proceedings.
