Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
When did you get the sentence for the others and what did you get please?
2010 15 months for gbh, 3 months abh and an abh in 2002 community service for that.
Ok - that is fine.
I assume this is not DV related?
That's correct, I was in drink at a wine bar.
Ok. Briefly what happened?
Who did you assault?
Me and my girlfriend was out drinking, she started arguing with a woman who was with a group of lads, before you knew it she was rolling around with the woman and then I got involved. They was a bit of a fight between me and a one of the lads then a chair got thrown at me and I lost it. One of the barman tried to get me out and i ended up taking it out on him. All of the statement said that I was the agressor so that is why I went guilty along with my previous
What injuries did he suffer?
Nothing to serious a bloody lip and sore nose.
Ok. The starting point is a high level Community Order and the range is a low level community order to 26 weeks.
Taking the top end even if its 26 weeks you get 1/3rd discount for pleading guilty which takes it to 17 weeks custody. As it is this it could be suspended.
However the problem is you assaulted a barman, so someone there to work
The good thing is you pleaded guilty and the injuries were minor
The difficulty is the 2 previous incidents for violence of course. This seems to indicate that you have an anger problem.
The court will want to address that. So I would think you would get a high level community order with anger management
Even if you get a suspended sentence you would get a programme requirement to attend anger management
Can I clarify anything for you about this today plase?
