Was this just scratches?
Is that your only injury?
Ok. So what were your injuries?
I would expect it to be charged as a common assault on the face of it.
The sentence would depend really on his previous really. On a first offence people do not get hefty sentences for common assault.
It could be charged as a racially aggravated common assault maybe.
If this is a common assault then it is really difficult to say what he would get. Unless he has horrendous previous then it would lead to a community order normally
People don't get custody on a first offence.
If he has horrendous previous then he could well get custody.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Yes, he was always going to get bail.
They weren't going to remand him for this.
