Yes i was interviewed and stated i did hit my wife, when released on bail i did say i will plead guilty at forthcoming magistrates court.
I believe it was because i held a knife (although nobody was touched by it), i think my spouse did not want me arrested but it is the cps that is prosecuting?
Also how do i rate you, cannot see a button?
Thank you Jo, one thing my bail conditions state no contact directly/indirectly with my spouse, would that mean i could talk to my children so long as it is general topics like school, exams etc without getting into trouble?
Children not in bail condition.
No comment advice noted.
I believe so!
If i can ask a further query, would you suggest i engage a solicitor to be with me at court, i cannot get legal aid but also do not have 1000's to throw at them.
Could i get by if i show remorse, plead guilty, and admit i need to fix my problems e.g drink & anger issues?
Sorry, unsure of terminology, by barrister under public access is that the duty solicitor they provide free at the court sentencing date?
Also, at magistrate court when they sentence me with "non jail term" will it all be over that day or do i have to go back for any reason?
And if i get a jail sentence would i be taken straight from the sentencing to jail?
Sorry too many thoughts running through my head!
Thank you very much Jo, you have brought my blood pressure down a notch or two.
I will concentrate on preparing for the court date and hopefully be able to make amends to my family in the next month or two.
