Sorry, Im not sure what you mean.
You mean he has stabbed somebody?
What were his injuries?
That is not good. Do you know what his injuries were?
Sorry, I thought your brother had stabbed somebody? If so, what is the relevance of his injuries?
Ok. And you are asking about the sentencing of your brother?
So I will need to know what injuries he caused.
I am really sorry but I will not be able to tell you what sentence he faces unless you can tell me injuries there were. It changes everything.
That is probably a S18 but it is not really possible to be sure. I can't imagine the Crown accepting a S20 if he used a knife upon a person's neck. It depends whether it was a stab wound or a cut wound across the neck. Either way, the injuries are not insignificant.
If it does remain a S18 then the lowest sentence 3 years and the highest is 16.
It probably falls into category two which would mean that the options are between 5 - 9 years.
But that is presuming that this is a S18 and he is 18 at the time of sentence.
No, he would serve roughly half of any custodial period.
He might get out earlier under home detention curfew.
