yes i think so this is the first time i have been charge and i never hit her we been together 8 years

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

all im worried about is going to prison

You won't go to prison.

Nobody gets custody on a first offence of common assault.

She may not give evidence against you anyway. More often than not they do try to withdraw although she will be summonsed but there are always ways around that.

There's no prospect of custody.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

so your saying i wont go to prison with this


 


even they took pictures of her ?

You won't go to prison.
