Hello I am a solicitor with over 15 years experience. I will try to help you with this.
The simplest way to find to is to simply phone the court on 01268 458 000 and ask for the result. If you tell me the defendant's name I can do that for you. Were you a victim or witness in the case and what was it about generally? If you feel at risk you should call the police immediately for protection. Even if he was sentencd to 7 months imprisonment he may not actually be in prison if for example he had served 3 and a half months on remand.
Prisoners normally only serve half their prison sentence in prison and serve the balance on licence in the community (subject to recall to prison if they misbehave).
He was sentenced to a 9 month prison sentence suspended for 18 months with 100 hours of unpaid work. This means that he is not in prison but if he commits another offence in the 18 months after the sentence is imposed or fails to carry out the work as required then he will go to prison and serve 4.5 months. If he has phoned and threatened you then he may have committed offences against you and your family. It is a matter for you whether you feel you need to report this to the police.
I hope this answer is helpful. I would be grateful if you would please rate my service. This will not close the question and I will continue to answer questions.
