What would you like to know about this please?
Ok. What are the facts?
What are you said to have done?
Those are actions that probably do amount to the higher end of the sentencing bracket.
Nevertheless, on a first offence I wokd expect a community order probably involving something like the think first course. It is not serious enough for an IDAP course.
It is aggravated by the grab to the throat and obviously the push down stairs.
This would normally leave injury though so I would concentrate on being acquitted.
Can I clarify anything for you? Jo
The higher end does include custody but I wouldn't expect that really. The breach of bail is not the worst aggravation.
Never admit offences at the police station especially with domestics as she might not have given evidence.
