If someone has been charged with biting someone in a brawl

Customer Question

If someone has been charged with biting someone in a brawl and the police have submitted the paper work to cps how long before it goes to court and will he be likely to be sent to prison he has no previous history

Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 days ago.

Haven't you been given a bail back date?

What are the injuries?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
He was bitten on the cheek all healed now the person was calledbto police admitted the brawl he thought the lad was going to hit his son and things got out of hand that is as much as I know
Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 days ago.

Ok. But what were the injuries at the time?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
As much as he knows a bite to the cheek
Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 days ago.

Yes, I understand.

But what injuries did that cause?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Open wound Drew blood I think
Expert:  Jo C. replied 9 days ago.

That is an ABH I'm afraid. The use of teeth will be considered a weapon.

That is almost certainly going to fall into the second sentencing category.

However, on a first offence it would almost certainly be a suspended sentence.

NOrmally CPS will make a decision within three months.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Will this be magistrates court
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Do you have any idea once cps decides the court hearing is likely to b
Expert:  Jo C. replied 9 days ago.

Yes, it could be but its much better if he is sent to the Crown Court.

This won't be the most serious case a Judge will have seen.

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
sorry how long can it take for him to get the court case from the police phoning him yesterday to say cps have decided to go ahead with the charge
Expert:  Jo C. replied 9 days ago.

I'm not sure what you mean?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Cps are charging him iswhat the police said to him yesterday he first heard about it in January so I did not know if u have any idea how long until it can take to actually go to Court
Expert:  Jo C. replied 9 days ago.

He would be charged at a police station normally although he could be summonsed.

Usually only about 10 days to two weeks though.
