how can i help please
To be honest there isn't really enough information here to give any reliable advice on that point.
Generally speaking an offence of witness intimidation would lead to a very long custodial sentence but I don't have enough information to be able to ascertain that.
They don't usually bring that offence unless various criteria are met and you haven't described the nature of the threats.
Most likely it will turn into A racially aggravated assault which is still serious especially the offence of biting as that is a weapon but it is not as serious as a witness intimidation. A person with no previous would not necessarily go to prison for that.
If this person does have previous then it would depend upon what it is.
Can I clarify anything for you? If you give me more reliable information than I could probably offer more.
