Please I do have a big ask. My husband been arested on

Customer Question

Hi. Please I do have a big ask. My husband been arested on Thursday evening as he slap me in the face as we had an argument. I did called the police and they said he going to be free to go in max 24h and we can sort all out. Unfortunately they said he can't back home and contact me any way until 24th of August as he admitted he did it. On that day police interwiwe me and him also I think I just was to upset about that all situation and I just said to much to them which isn't really true. Now they are concern he might be aggressive when he will be back to us so they force him to stay away. He is not a agreessive men he just lost himself for that little time. And I truly believe he is not going to repeat that never again. We have a baby 20 mint old and they just left me with the baby alone. We don't have any family here or somwhere else where I can go and ask for a sport. I realy feel like I need him so muh and I did say tonthe police I do agree we can go and ask for help with anger menagment course as I want to make sure we will have a happy life togheter. But at the moment I don't know where he is do he is okay and safe and he can't contact me or I can't contact him. Please I m desperate for some help do is anyway we can allow him to came back home ? Please

Hi. Unfortunately I don't have the money in my account. And I m desperate for any help so if you can text me is fine just want some advice
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No he did not hit me before that was a 1st time he slap me we had in a past some arguments and he pushed me few times and he tried to take the baby away from me few times but that was just to scare me and I know he didn't mean to hurt me
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Ok. But have you called the police before?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But I was so upset on the nite when that happend and I told to the police as he pushed me hard and I m scared of him but that was because I was realy upset about what happend .
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did once about 1 year ago as he try to take the baby on the hands and go out of the flat but I hang up the phone and when the police came we just said we had a big argument at that time and that was the truth at that time we had just a big argument and I was scared
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Ok. So have you done this before?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I called once but that was just an argument there was not phisical abuse
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I call them and I hang up the phone and when the poilce turn up we both said that was just a big argument and there we nothink else I was just scared as he tooked the baby on his hands and he was wanted to go out
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Ok. They have given him a domestic violence protective order.

I'm afraid you do not really have much chance of doing anything about that. The reality is that you have done this before and did do this on this occasion and he has admitted it.

Even if you appealed a court is not going to say that it was wrong to give him a DPO.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
she was just little and he just wanted to scare me
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

The only way to avoid this I'm afraid is not to call the police to a domestic incident.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I know and I know is not going to happend anymore but I don't know if u can do anything to he can came back home erlier
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

that is always supposing that they have not charged him and sent him to court although I think the 24th August would be too late for that.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Jo

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Not if he has admitted it.

There is nothing that can be done if he admitted it.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Oh no ! And what can happend in court ? I never was in that situation
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

If he pleads it will be adjourned for a sentence.

They won't lift his bail conditions realistically.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What that mean I just don't understand
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My English is okay but I can't understand some of the words you said
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

They are not going to let him come home.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay but what can happend in the court ? As I can't even go there on the day
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hiw I m going to know what is happening as I can't even contact him
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

You can go there. It is a public court.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay. Donyou know how this might finish and what they can do to him
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

It depends what you have alleged and what he has admitted?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did say he was pushing me few times before and now he slapped me and he is sometimes so angry and I don't know why and he admitted he slapped me
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Did you have any injuries?

No

Not even a brusse or sighn of he slapping me
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

What about reddening of the skin?

That is what officer's usually note.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That was nothing already when they interview me as was about 3 hours after that happend
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, but when the officer attended?

This answer will only be right if you give me accurate information.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That was nothing realy ot was a bit red but we was in a dark car so I don't know how much he saw and which notes he put
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think he ask me do I have any injury but I said nothing which I can see at the moment I said is a bit red but no busses or so
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I realy don't remember all that was just to much happening
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I m just so scared they will not allow him to came back home after the court
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

They could impose a restraining order but they wouldn't normally do that on the second occasion you have done this.

If this were to happen again then a restraining order may be likely.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I know he will change as he is realy not a bad person he lost it for one time but he is a realy loving husband and a father
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
you are saying most likely he will be allowed to came home
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Oh yes, we all have rows.

The problem is that this has come to the attention of the police.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But I m just worrin so much now and have nobody to give an advice and the police don't want to talk to me
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

In the long run but not immediately for the reasons above.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Do he will be allowed to came back home or he will be need to stay away
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
After the 24 th of August
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

It depends what he does. If it is court on the 24 th and he pleads guilty then it will be adjourned for sentence.

If he pleads not guilty then it will be adjourned for trial.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't understand
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If he will say he did it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What they will do to him
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I know him he is not going to lie
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He will say he did it
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

I am not really able to predict the sentence.

It is not really possible to tell what he has admitted.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay I understand but if he said he did it just please qivee some idea what it can be done to him
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Do he will be allowed back home and let say go for a anger menagment course or they will not allow him to came back home
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

It depends on his previous and upon the allegation.

Common assault can be committed in many different ways.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

They could impose a restraining order but they wouldn't normally do that on the second occasion you have done this.

If this were to happen again then a restraining order may be likely.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay I think I do understand what you are telling me. Thank you so much for all your support. If I will have any more questions can I contact you again ?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
