Yes, they could charge this as an ABH.

I rather surprised they have not but I wouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth.

Yes, it is possible the charge could be reviewed though.

Can I clarify anything for you?

This is a cut which is an ABH.

In fact they could charge it as a S20 wounding.

So forensics are unlikely to be an issue.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 months ago.

I really don't think they are likely to accept he did it himself.

in any event, you accept doing it so you can't lie.

No, they may not.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 months ago.

It depends.

If it remains a common assault then probably a community order.
