Do you know whether this has been reported to the police?
What led up to the incident?
Do you know whether the victim had any medical treatment for this?
Was this related to his diabetes, lack of insulin?
What do you want to know about it?
I haven’t answered your question yet which is why the rating service isn’t working. You will find it working now however.
This is a US administered site but I am in north-west England and I am a UK qualified solicitor. So rest assured, you are speaking to the right person in the right place.
In my opinion, you can never speak to a solicitor too early and you have made the first steps on here but obviously, you are going to need someone locally to you. It may take a few days or even weeks to get an appointment so you might want to make that appointment now because nothing happens, you can always cancel it.
If your husband gets charged, he would probably get charged with common assault. That doesn’t have to be physical contact for common assault, the person has just to fear immediate physical violence from what you’ve said, that is enough. It is the lowest form of assault under section 39 of the Offences against the Person Act.
Because of the nature of this, if it does go to court, he would probably get a fine and a low-level community service order at worst.
If his actions caused through lack of insulin leading to impairment of judgement, he may be able to rely on the defence of temporary insanity. This is not insanity in the normal sense of the word temporary insanity brought upon by not having the insulin that he needed. He would need however to be insulin-dependent.
If however it was brought on by having too much insulin, then if he injected himself, it is self-inflicted and he cannot rely on that defence.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Please do not forget to rate the service positive. It’s an important part of the process by which experts get paid.
because of the low-level nature of the offence, they are more likely to ask him to attend an interview under caution and if he does not, then they would arrest him.
If they are going to charge him, after the interview, they would arrest him, charge him, and then let him out bail.
He is unlikely to be dragged out of the house in handcuffs. He can only be charged at the police station. He is entitled to have a solicitor present when being interviewed.
