US citizen Anne Sacoolas will face criminal prosecution in the UK accused of causing the death of Harry Dunn by dangerous driving.
The 44-year-old is accused of killing the teenager in a traffic accident outside the US military base RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire on August 27, 2019.
The case will be heard in Westminster Magistrates Court on January 18, the Crown Prosecution Service said.
She had diplomatic immunity asserted on her behalf by the US government after the collision, and she was able to leave the UK 19 days after the incident.
The CPS made the decision to charge Sacoolas with causing Dunn’s death by dangerous driving in December 2019.
Dunn’s mother, Charlotte Charles, told the Palestinian Authority news agency that her family was “very excited” after hearing the news.
She said: “My family and I are very excited and overwhelmed, having learned the news that Ms. Sacoolas will now face our justice system.
“It’s all we ask for after Harry’s death.”
Ms Sacoolas had diplomatic immunity asserted on her behalf by the US government after the collision, and was able to leave the UK after the incident.
In December 2019, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) authorized Northamptonshire Police to charge Ms Sacoolas with causing death by dangerous driving.
The US government rejected an extradition request for her to be taken to the UK.
A CPS spokesperson said: “While the challenges and complexity of this case are well known, we remain committed to ensuring justice in this matter.
“Anne Sacoolas has the right to a fair trial. It is extremely important that there are no reports, comments or exchange of information online that could in any way predudice any procedure.”
