Alex Watts : How long will it take the victim to recover please?
my son has grade three concussion, hospital said recovery for this can vary, he has already suffered for 11 days, his fractures will take 6 weeks to heal.
Alex Watts : If it is fractures it will certainly be actual bodily harm. It could also be grevious bodily harm as well
Alex Watts : He is also likely to face possession of an offensive weapon.
Alex Watts : If your son and daughter were the victim they can claim self defence.
Alex Watts : They could be charged with affray but may be released without charge
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
my daughter also suffered a broken nose, the 25 year old sent my 17 year old a text telling him he was going to do it, does this show intent?
Alex Watts : It certainly shows a threat. Intent is what is in a persons mind. Someone might send a text with no intention of carrying it out,
Alex Watts : Does that help?
oh right, thanks for clearing that up, he ran up behind my son and hit him over the head with it, even after my daughter managed to kick the bat into the road this boy picked it back up and hit my son again
Alex Watts : Yes. He is likely to face charges, they should be ok
thank you for your help it is a worry, my daughter is in university, my son apprentice engineer, they have never been in trouble, my daughter was petrified she said she thought he was going to kill him and she just wanted to get the bat of him.
Alex Watts : Yes I understand. I am sure the police have it in hand
