Customer Question
Hi, mu boyfriend may...

Hi, mu boyfriend may be charged with section 18, however he was defending himself and me from a guy who arrived at our property with a knife threatening to kill me

Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did this occur?

This happened in the United Kingdom

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Yes we have however the lawyer said my bf mught be fancing 3 years in prison which I dont think is right as he was defending himself and myself from the attacker and he never had issues with thr law before

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No thanks

I have called the police and we had to wait 40 minutes before they arrived this is the reason my boyfriend was defecting himself as the guy had a knife and because my boyfriend was in shock and in fear for his and my life my boyfriend has broken the guys 6 ribs by hitting him once.

what could my boyfriend be facing?
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 10 months ago

A S18 charge?

Do you mean what sentence would he get? If so, I will need more information and I would need to know who the crown put their case. It is not really possible to tell which category and range this would fall into at this stage.
