Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Yea now would be betting as its in my mind
Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.
Ok. Do you have any previous? If so, for what and when?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I did about 10 years ago but was for driving with no liecence but was baseball bat in car then done me for weapon but that's it
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I done community service for that
Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.
If it was 10 years ago then they should disregard it.
People do not normally go to prison for common assault unless they have substantial previous convictions.
If this is a punch using a clenched fist then that is too serious for a fine or a conditional discharge but it will be a community order of some form.
If this was at a football match then they might make a football banning order.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Jo

Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.
Yes, you do.
You should have had a solicitor at the police station.
