What were your wife's injuries and what have you been charged with?
no injurys at all minor domestic.only and my wife has withdrawn all charges help please
as basically we are both very worried about this the wife is worried I may go to jail even thouth never had any seruos offences before in my life
didn't you get my last reply please??
The prosecution can continue even if your wife has withdrawn the charges because the decision to prosecute is not hers but that of the Crown Prosecution Service in criminal cases. As such if you admitted the assault or there is independent evidence of it they can proceed without her co operation.
Whether they do or not often depends on the severity or otherwise of the injuries.
However even if they do decide to proceed you will not receive a custodial sentence in the circumstances you describe. A fine is most likely.
I hope this helps. If there are any further points please reply.
hello again I got off with a small fine and bound over for 12 months but sadly I may have a criminal record now for a slight minor offence is there anyway I can get rid off that as im now a penshioner almost 70 years old ..this is my final question
.No I am afraid you are stuck with it unless you can show there was a fundamental error such as they charged the wrong person.
It was however a pretty good result
