Don't have his charge sheet but I don't think so

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
I would need to know what the charge is but if you need some time to get it then I will be around tomorrow?

The firearms charge is the most important one here.

Ok. I can advise on that basis but if the charge is wrong then it will be wildly wrong.
