Was seen walking pased flat


Ok. Thanks.

Its a small number of incidents which is helpful but it does involve actual physical approaches which is damaging.

It straddles between guideline one and two but I think they would conclude that guidelines two would apply.

The starting point is 6 weeks custody but they would not send you to prison on a first offence. You are facing a medium level community order though realistically and probably compensation and costs.

There were also be a restraining order preventing you from having contact with her.

Can I clarify anything for you?
