Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
No, it wont be a custodial sentence.
You can lodge the appeal forms from overseas but would need to ATTEND the appeal.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Was it Section 4 or Section 5?
Yes I am sure.
Section 5 is a fine only
Section 4 is a fine only
Does that clarify?
Did you show a weapon?
But you disputed that?
Ok - well the Court will have to sentence on your case.
Given there was no weapon brandished then it would be a Community Order
If a weapon was brandished it would be custody but it could be suspended.
The Court would have had to make a finding that the weapon was brandished.
I don't know whether the Court did
But in any event you could seek a suspended custodial sentence.
Your Solicitor will ask. You can ask for the duty Solicitor on the day
Can I clarify anything else for you?
