Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends.

There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Was this the first hearing or did you plead not guilty please?
i pleaded guilty,but the judge wanted to see the cctv
Ok - so it has gone off for sentence?
so they have to get it,i havent seen it when being interviewed
Or adjourned for the Judge to look at the CCTV for sentence?
no just ajourned for cctv and he wants a probation report
Ok - then the Solicitor would have gone through the statements
However you will be sentenced on your version of events and based on what the CCTV shows
Witnesses often are mistaken as to the details.
But the Judge will sentence you on your version and take into account the CCTV
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
the injuries wear a thick lip and 2nd male said i hit him but no injury,on the police report they say i hit one and lunged at another.
Ok - the CCTV will show all
But if that is not available you will be sentenced on your version of events
in the statements it says male 1 was unconsuse,do they need medical proof of this
Did you plead guilty on a basis?
yes i did
I assume this was accepted by the CPS?
If so then you will be sentenced on that written basis so it makes no difference what the statements said
You will be sentenced on the written basis agreed
i only pleaded guilty as the police said it was on cctv
You have pleaded guilty on a basis and you will be sentenced on the basis agreed.
Can I clarify anything for you?
yes please dont under stand basis agreed
You said you pleaded guilty on a basis which was accepted by the CPS
This is a different version to what is in the statements. That means the Judge will sentence you on YOUR version of events
Not on the CPS version
