Thank you for your question.

Do you have a medical history which could be shown to the court?

What treatment do you get?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I do have the medical history. This was first spotted on 2008, and i was under treatment till 2011. After that i felt OK. But the doctor warned me that, some times it could be triggered due to anxiety and depression, and for this u need to do yoga. And for past couple of years i was doing yoga, but suddenly i dont know what happened.


I didnt have any treatment in UK. i was under medication with doctor in India, and i could show that history.


This is my first incident in UK. Will i be able to get out of this without any criminal conviction.

Expert:  JGM replied 2 years ago.
You will still get a criminal conviction but the sentence will take into account your condition. You will have to produce medical information to the court and the court would in all likelihood deal with this leniently, possibly by way of a fine or a deferral for good behaviour.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Will a good criminal lawyer could deal with and avoid my criminal conviction. As this incident didnt happen delibratly.
