hi, my ex boyfriend is on remand waiting for trial to be sentenced for assault by beating. He was on license after being convicted of 2 counts of wounding with intent and served the minimum tariff of 4 years on an indeterminate sentence. the assault charge came about because he came round to my house drunk where myself and a friend were excessively drunk and a row began. My friend and i tried to make him leave and we had to use alot of force. I was tapped on the head which my friend witnessed. i had had a miscarriage and was suffering from depression- this is now being treated. I feel really upset because my friend called the police without my knowledge. I had no recollection of the incident and a statement was made whilst intoxicated whereby I must have lied out of anger about him being aggressive both on that day and in the past(seen at the police station when i did a retraction statement)i told the officer i could not recall the incident and have still to hear whether i will be called to court to take the stand. My question is- what is the likelihood that he will be convicted? Ive heard that he is on recall and getting help for his alcohol abuse and is likely to stay in prison for around 9-12 months. before the miscarriage we had a very good relationship.
what the liklihood is that he will be convicted?
and whether the prosecution will summon me to court? i dont want him being convicted for this
no.. ive never been involved in anything like this
she is scared of giving evidence and cant remember what she said in her statement. she got told by a solicitor that if she retracts the cps would likely believe i have intimidated her.
