I just received a sentence for battery section 39, High

Customer Question

Hello, I just received a sentence for battery section 39
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire Uk
JA: What action has been taken so far? What's your ideal outcome?
Customer: I received a community order of 140 hours unpaid work and £860 court costs
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I was working as a doorsupervisor staff that night and I tried to remove from the venue a trespassing person who I see he reached for his pocket while he sat on the bench. I slapped him in order to restrain him but the magistrates saw that I punched him which I never did

I need to know what are my chances to win the appeal at Crown Court
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 month ago.

Well, it is not really something that can be assessed in this forum. It turns on the facts and the evidence of which I will have no vision.

If the allegation is punching and you accept slapping then Im not sure there is much distinction.

In truth, slapping is not normally a restraining act.

But it turns on the facts and I haven't seen them.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 month ago.

It is always worth trying.

Apart from anything else the witness might not come back.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Jo
