Scottish Law Questions? Ask a Scots Lawyer
Thanks for your time, that really isn't what we are looking for though - it is more a case of how would the procurator fiscal categorise the offence to the person deciding on the sentence? The best example that I can think of is for instance a murder can be categorised into different levels of seriousness depending on intent, circumstances etc etc and the charge would reflect that. There must be some documentation to refer to to enable the lawyers and judges to base their cases on?
So frustrating, i'm not a lawyer myself (obviously!), just trying to show that the level of charge is not deemed at the most serious end of the spectrum.
