Harry Dunn was killed in 2019 in a head-on smash near RAF Croughton[/caption]
In December 2019 Sacoolas was charged with causing death by dangerous driving over the death of Harry, 19, in a smash near RAF Croughton on August 27 that year.
Sacoolas is understood to have been driving the SUV which was involved in a head-on collision with Harry.
She is understood to have left the US base at RAF Croughton and was allegedly driving on the wrong side of the road when she is said to have fatally hit the teen.
Harry’s mum Charlotte Charles said her son was going to visit his twin brother Niall when he was killed in the crash.
The 44-year-old was able to leave the UK after diplomatic immunity was asserted on her behalf by the US Government.
The US embassy confirmed Sacoolas was behind the wheel of the car involved, and Northamptonshire Police have said the car was travelling on the wrong side of the road.

Since the incident, Ms Sacoolas has been at the centre of a bitter row between UK and US authorities.
Sacoolas is the wife of US diplomat Jonathan Sacoolas who was stationed on the US intelligence base at RAF Croughton, Northamptonshire, in 2019.
The military base is used by the US Air Force and processes around a third of all US military communications in Europe.
The family refused to participate in the stunt which was sprung on them during a meeting in October 2019 – later describing it as an “ambush”.
