Ok - in what way is this one different?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Its following months of abuse by these two against me which i have proof of, i only contacted them on one day to let them know I had obtained proof that the lies they had been spreading about me were lies
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
Are you related to the people who have abused you?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No never meet them all via Royal Navy facebook pages
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
Ok, I see. It looks like you are between guidelines. The one which says: Small number of incidents the starting point is a Community Order and range of sentence is fine to high level Community Order.The next is: Constant contact at night, trying to come into workplace or home, involving others, the starting point is 6 weeks custody and range is Community Order to 12 weeks custody.I think based on what you have said its likely to be a Community Order. Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex

Just one thing how do the previous convictions affect me
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
They are aggravating factors and are taken into consideration. But as you completed the order and didnt breach it, this can be distinguished because this is non family related.Does that clarify?Alex
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
