Coronation Street: Yasmeen's case thrown out of court?

Geoff abused Yasmeen for months

Coronation Street has hinted Yasmeen's case could be thrown out of court, if Geoff chooses not to give evidence.

Currently Yasmeen is waiting for her trial, as she pleaded not guilty to the attempted murder of her abusive husband Geoff. But will we even see a trial?

In Monday night's episode of Corrie (Monday, July 13) Geoff told his wife that he would withdraw his statement if she came back to him.

However the police pointed out to Geoff that it's down to the Crown Prosecution Service whether they continue with the case.

Imran later paid his client Yasmeen a visit in prison. He told her that Geoff refusing to give evidence could result in there being no case and the trial not going ahead.

Will Geoff really refuse to give evidence?

But she calls Geoff, who is shocked to hear from her.

Geoff promises his wife that when she comes home things will be different and he will seek professional help. But Yasmeen ends the call unsure what to believe.
