Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Do you accept the assault and damaged property please?
If you plead guilty it will go off for a pre sentence report and sentenced at a later date
If you plead not guilty it gets listed for trial.
There is nothing more you can do on the day sadly.
Your wife should only attend the trial not the main hearing
Does that clarify?
Sorry, what is the difference between the trial and the main hearing? This seems relatively minor with no previous incidents and no proven injury and if no inclination by my wife to appear as a witness how often would CPS decide not to prosecute? Thank you
Trial is where a Court decides whether you are guilty or not guilty.
The main hearing is first apparance to enter a plea
The CPS sadly have a policy to continue where it is domestic violence related
